Some brief overview of this book

In her preface, Kamala Das tells us that she began writing her autobiography while seriously ill, that the serialized version in an Indian journal brought much embarrassment to her family, and that she derived great pleasure from emptying her soul. Born in Calcutta in 1934, Kamala Das often attended British schools where she was always a minority: a brown-skinned girl amon In her preface, Kamala Das tells us that she began writing her autobiography while seriously ill, that the serialized version in an Indian journal brought much embarrassment to her family, and that she derived great pleasure from emptying her soul. Born in Calcutta in 1934, Kamala Das often attended British schools where she was always a minority: a brown-skinned girl among caucasians, a Hindu among Christians.

She affectionatly remembers time spent with her grandmother at the ancestral home, knows her marriage to a distant relative at age fifteen is everything but a union of love, and struggles to understand this silent man whose bed she shares. In her constant search for love, Kamala Das often falls in love, as a child with students and teachers, as an adult with men who take the time to know her. It is her sons and her poetry that give meaning to her life.

Enveloped by loneliness and sadness that last through years of nervous breakdowns and heart problems, she expresses her feelings through poetry that she sends to journals: "My grief fell like drops of honey on the white sheets on my desk. My sorrow floated over the pages of magazines darkly as heavy monsoon clouds do in the sky..". Eventually Kamala Das gains recognition as a poet, despite her unorthodox approach to the role of women and her frank commentary on sexuality.

Her autobiography is filled with honest, painful, and thought-provoking insight.
