Join Book Club Girl of www.bookclubgirl.com as she welcomes Thrity Umrigar, acclaimed and bestselling author of The Space Between Us as she discusses her newest novel in paperback, The Weight of Heaven. In the rich tradition of the acclaimed works of Indian writers such as Rohinton Mistry, Akhil Sharma, Indra Sinha, and Jhumpa Lahiri, The Weight of Heaven is an emotionally charged story about unexpected death, unhealed wounds, and the price one father will pay to protect himself from pain and loss. Additionally, it offers unique perspectives, both Indian and American, on the fragmented nature of globalized India.
