'Watch the changing India from a refreshingly new angle. Funny and liberating at once, Mrs C Remembers is a novel you can't afford to miss' ANEES SALIM

'Skilfully weaving the stories of three generations of women, Himanjali Sankar takes us into the necrotic depths of a Bengali family' JERRY PINTO

Mrs Anita Chatterjee, wife to one of Kolkata's most successful men, has lived a bustling life managing her husband’s large household and mingling regularly with the rich and powerful. Now, after forty years of a life of unquestioned compliance, the only thing she can do is try to forget.

Her daughter, Sohini, is an artist living in Delhi with an unconventional partner. As Mrs C begins to engage with their ideas, she finds she can no longer ignore the tumultuous world outside. Soon she is diagnosed with a formidable medical condition, one that will allow her to let down her guard and come into her own.

Unflinching and darkly funny, Mrs C Remembers is a piercing exploration of the limits of submission, of illness and upheaval, and the unfathomable powers of the human mind.
