A Cycle of the Moon
A NovelBook - 2010
Fiction. South Asian Studies. It is a tense autumn the year Mayura comes away from her husband, saying she will never return to the uncouth, lustful monster. Everyone in the family is affected by her arrival. A sense of collective guilt emasculates the men even as they lecture her on the moral duty of returning to her wedded husband. A sense of outrage mingled with secret sorrow overcomes the women. No one knows what to make of Mayura. Meanwhile she behaves as though nothing and nobody can touch her. Using a deceptively simple and intimate style, Parameswaran explores the subtleties of love, marriage, sex, and family life in a changing South Indian environment.
