Fasting, Feasting

Fasting, Feasting

Fasting, Feasting reveals two different ways of assuaging human hungers, desires and appetites. It contrasts a close-knit Indian household, with the life the younger son finds when he spends the summer in Massachusetts with the Patton family and their freezer full of meat that nobody wants to eat. Full of wit and sensuality, farce and deep pathos, Anita Desai’s novel cuts right to the heart of family life in two different cultures.
