    Confession I had no idea who Usha KR was when I picked this book up at my favorite bookshop I was drawn to the idea of something set in Karnataka What I got instead was a brilliant, aching and beautifully written portrait of familial tensions set amidst the backdrop of the Indian fight for independence Sometimes, beautiful things happen when you least expect it And this book was one of those Q

    This is the first book I read by Usha K.R and I was blown away Sketched with meticulous detail, A Girl and a River is about Mylaraiah, an illustrious lawyer, and his family who lives in Mysore during 1930 s British India We are treated to delicious sepia toned vignettes of pre Independence India and little cultural tidbits that I wouldn t have known otherwise For instance, I had never heard of a sweet

    It s been a while since I ve read a book where the author displays such fine sway over her content and craft Usha K R has been writing forthan a decade now her last novel was The Chosen and while she has always received rave reviews for her works, it is her latest book, A Girl And A River that has come in for some much deserved critical attention The author was the recipient of the Crossword Award recently, whe

    A Girl And A River took me into a reverie of sorts, the writing for me was strangely poignant and intense Characters like Kaveri and Setu seemed to be people with whom I can identify with, the similarity with a Kannada household to which I belong as well has something to do with it I suppose It was therefore easy to get into the narrator s shoe The story is a decent read if you are looking for something about people of

    I loved this book for the writing the language, the humour, the characterization and the craftsmanship The history of India is skillfully woven into the lives of the protagonists The author skillfully juggles two time periods the 1930s and the 1980s What happens in between, and why the fortunes of the protagonists are so changed is a mystery that is unravelled slowly through the book The childish antics and concerns of Kaveri, her brother Setu and their f

    I couldn t really recommend this book It s not that it was bad in fact I think the plot was pretty interesting, and I like novels which try to weave larger historical happenings into the characters lives, among other good points about the book But in the end, I didn t feel like I got to know the main characters very well, and the twist in the novel, which happened towards the very end of the book, wasn t predictable at least for me but I didn t feel like she made

    In proseefficient than evocative, Usha K.R tells of a time when pre Independence nationalist frenzy was at its peak in India, and of the toll it extracts on the life of the protagonist in a small town in Karnataka Would have been better had the frame story which is set in the present had been reduced, for all the emotional charge of the book lies in the narration of events of the past.
