Discover the classic, Man Booker Prize shortlisted novel from one of India's finest ever writers. To the family living in the shabby, dusty house in Delhi, Tara's visit brings a sharp reminder of life outside tradition. For Bim, coping endlessly with their problems, there is a renewal of the old jealousies for, unlike her sister, she has failed to escape.

Looking at both the cruelty and the beauty of family life and the harshness of India's modern history, Clear Light of Day brilliantly evokes the painful process of confronting and healing old wounds. 'Clear Light of Day does what only the best novels can do; it totally submerges us.' Anne Tyler
