Evening Is the Whole Day - Preeta Samarasan

Left mostly to her own devices, six-year-old Aasha spends her days lurking in the shadows, bearing witness to the astonishing goings-on in the Big House on Kingfisher Lane. That’s how she knows the true circumstances surrounding her grandmother Paati’s mysterious death, the real reason why her suddenly-distant older sister Uma can’t wait to leave for Columbia University, and why the servant girl, Chellam, once her only ally, is being banished from the family’s home. Set against the sweeping backdrop of post-colonial Malaysia, Preeta Samarasan’s extraordinary debut novel, Evening Is The Whole Day (Mariner, $13.95), uses a fresh, lyrical voice to paint a poignant, intimate portrait of a troubled family.
