Mark your calendars for Thursday, May 22nd for my next blog talk radio show! I'll be talking to Thrity Umrigar, author of the acclaimed reading group favorite The Space Between Us, as well as a book group.We'll also be taking calls from anyone who'd like to join the discussion. Umrigar's The Space Between Us tells the story of two women in India -- Sera Dubash is an upper middle class housewife whose opulent lifestyle hides her abusive marriage and Bhima is the stoic, hardened illiterate woman who has worked in her household for more than twenty years. This powerful and perceptive novel demonstrates how the lives of the rich and poor are intrinsically connected yet vastly removed from each other, and how the strong bonds of womanhood are eternally opposed by the divisions of class and culture.
