Her Mother's Ashes 3

edited by Nurjehan Aziz

Following the greatly acclaimed first two volumes in this series, this collection brings together more first-rate stories by South Asian women that—whether set in their home countries or those of their adoption—explore with profound and sensitive insight the inner tenor of women’s lives caught between places, cultures, and generations.  Precisely crafted and sensitively told, each of these twenty stories offers us a wonderful glimpse into the complex and manifold world of the South Asian women of North America.

Praise for the previous volumes:

". . . an intense, pleasurable, and instructive experience, making me reflect on the ideas of home, homelessness, fragmented cultures, and cultures in conflict and dialogue."
Books in Canada

"Interesting and evocative fiction that provides illuminating—and often troubling—insights into the North American life of the South Asians."
