Description


Zee JLF Boulder Book Club Meet-up: at JLF at Boulder, Colorado 9/22/2018 4-5pm in the Skyscapes Venue, 2nd floor, Boulder Public Library

Meet With Author Kiran Desai: The Inheritance of Loss

Read the September JLF@Boulder Book Club selection, The Inheritance of Loss; then join us for live discussion and Q&A with the author!

In a crumbling, isolated house at the foot of Mount Kanchenjunga in the Himalayas lives an embittered judge who wants only to retire in peace, when his orphaned granddaughter, Sai, arrives on his doorstep. The judge's cook watches over her distractedly, for his thoughts are often on his son, Biju, who is hopscotching from one gritty New York restaurant to another. Kiran Desai's brilliant novel, published to huge acclaim, is a story of joy and despair. Her characters face numerous choices that majestically illuminate the consequences of colonialism as it collides with the modern world.
