More About This Title Shards of Memory


These are the stories of the people in Parita Mukta's family, a family which has traversed the continents bearing with it an array of memories and stories, both magical and mythological. The book follows the move of the author's grandparents in the early 1920s from western India to a Kenyan colony, and spans a period of over eighty years. It tells the history of the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of these migrants as they built their lives first in East Africa and then from the 1970s onwards in the cities of London, Ahemdabad, Miami and Toronto.
