Environment

In this stunning debut novel, Samira Gupta explores what it is to grow up in an oppressive, patriarchal environment, where one man's word is law. With powerful black-and-white phtographs, she tells a story about a personal search for identity, faith and clarity in an environment where everything is provided for and yet nothing is given. Where three generations of women live, pray and laught together, and yet each fends only for herself. With humour and great insight, Gupta paints a poignant picture of a girl trying to find herself, veering between wanting space and not needing it, between self-doubt and resilient confidence. Is the rambling 57/8 her home and safe haven, or a place that will splinter away all her individuality. Taking the reader through new roads and old lanes with perception, sensitivity, originality and wit, Gupta's is an exciting new voice to watch out for. About Author: Samira Gupta was born in Kolkata. She graduated with a degree in Mass Communication from Mount Carmel College, Bangalore, after which she pursued her interest in Visual Communication with a degree in Communication Design from Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology, Bangalore. She currently works and resides in New Delhi.
