Facing My Phantoms is a fictional rendering of the most tumultuous period of Nepalese history from the 1930s till the present day. Through the eyes of Sanjeevani, the story describes an ongoing socio-economic and political process that has been on since over half a century. It draws upon the painful transformation from a feudal society into a hopefully more egalitarian one. Rebelling against the rigid norms of society, Sanjeevani finds herself equally in rebellion with her conscience. Through Sanjeevani?s consciousness, writing a biography of her grandmother, the novel depicts characters whose lives history hasnthrown completely out of gear. Amid the all-pervasive chaos of a nation caught up in the throes of a bloody insurgency, the protagonist moves back and forth in time as she attempts to discover her true self within the chaotic conflicts of her conscience.
