5/5 - (1 vote)

Tomb of Sand Geetanjali Shree International Booker Prize Winner. SHORTLISTED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL BOOKER PRIZE 2022 WINNER OF AN ENGLISH PEN AWARD After the death of her husband, an eighty-year-old woman in northern India falls into severe despair, only to emerge with a new lease on life.

Her willingness to defy convention, including forming a friendship with a transgender person, perplexes her bohemian daughter, who considers herself the more modern of the two.

Ma insists on visiting Pakistan, much to her family’s chagrin, to confront the unresolved anguish of her teenage Partition memories while also re-evaluating what it means to be a mother, a daughter, a woman, and a feminist. Instead of taking tragedy seriously.

Geetanjali Shree’s playful tone and exuberant wordplay create an engaging, funny, and unique book while also being an urgent and timely protest against the destructive impact of borders and boundaries, whether between religions, countries, or genders.

Conclusion: Tomb of Sand Booker Prize

Storytelling at its finest. Geetanjali Shree, the author, is a pioneering writer. The story defies stereotypes, raises many questions, and puts the reader to the test. The English translation is excellent, but reading the original Hindi version is far more intimate, and it arguably pushes the “Sanskritized Hindi” reader even more.
