Description

‘Astha was brought up properly, as befits a woman, with large supplements of fear...’

‘In between they talked, the talk of discovery and attraction, the teasing and the pleasure of an intimacy that was complete and absolute... Afterwards Astha felt strange, making love to a woman took getting used to. And it also felt ...strange, making love to a friend instead of an adversary.’

Astha has everything an educated, middle-class Delhi woman could ask for – children, a dutiful loving husband and comfortable surroundings. When she embarks on a powerfully physical relationship with a much younger woman, she risks losing the acquisitions of her conventional marriage.

A Married Woman is the story of an artist whose canvas challenges the constraints of middle-class existence. A beautifully honest and seductive story of love, set at a time of political and religious upheaval, A Married Woman is for anyone who has known life’s responsibilities.
