Book Marks: Coffee & Camaraderie
June Book: The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai
Published to great acclaim, this story of joy and despair focuses on characters who face many choices that illuminate the consequences of colonialism as it collides with the modern world. Set in the Himalayas, the plot involves an embittered judge, looking forward to retirement, who gets an unexpected visit from his orphaned granddaughter. The judge's cook watches her as his thoughts turn to his son, who is jumping from one gritty New York restaurant job to another.
