Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

In her most spellbinding novel yet, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni spins a fresh, enchanting story of transformation that is as lyrical as it is dramatic.
Rakhi, a young artist and divorced mother living in Berkeley, California, is struggling to keep her footing with her family and with a world in alarming transition. Her mother is a dream teller, born with the ability to share and interpret the dreams of others, to foresee and guide them through their fates. This gift of vision fascinates Rakhi but also isolates her from her mother's past in India and the dream world she inhabits, and she longs for something to bring them closer. Caught beneath the burden of her own painful secret, Rakhi's solace comes in the discovery, after her mother's death, of her dream journals, which begin to open the long-closed door to her past.

As Rakhi attempts to divine her identity, knowing little of India but drawn inexorably into a sometimes painful history she is only just discovering, her life is shaken by new horrors. In the wake of September 11, she and her friends must deal with dark new complexities about their acculturation. Haunted by nightmares beyond her imagination, she nevertheless finds unexpected blessings: the possibility of new love and understanding for her family.

?A dream is a telegram from the hidden world,? Rakhi's mother writes in her journals. In lush and elegant prose, Divakaruni has crafted a vivid and enduring dream, one that reveals hidden truths about the world we live in, and from which readers will be reluctant to wake.

Rezension:

"Will resonate with anyone who has struggled with modern love, mores and parenthood." --"USA Today"
?Enchants as much with its flashes of fancy as it does with its fresh spin on cultural identity, family, and redemption.? --"Entertainment Weekly"
?Divakaruni?s book shines . . . in its examination of the subtle, extrasensory connections between mothers and daughters that continue to develop even after death divides them.?
--"Los Angeles Times"
?Magical. . . . In lyrical, poetic prose, Divakaruni manages to be hopeful without offering false reassurances, showing how identity--both individual and communal--is equally shaped by loss and creation.? --"San Francisco Chronicle"
"A masala of page-turning addiction." ?"The Baltimore Sun"
