3 Zakia Mansion
by Gouri Dange
3, Zakia Mansion is the story of a Mumbai family in the decades following the seventies. The story centres on Shaheen, a daughter who witnesses the slow fraying of the family fabric. Changing times, obsolete attitudes, a life-changing event within the family-all these come together in a cauldron from which Shaheen must leap out.

"Orphaned again and again" as she calls it, by adults who are at best adrift, and at worst cruel, Shaheen struggles to make a different life for herself. But somehow the sums don't add up. She loses what she thought was her new-found stability ? to come to the realization that there are no shortcuts in the process of living the 'life examined'.

Forced to - and then choosing to - abandon her marriage, she struggles to reach out to her daughter from whom she is estranged. In the process, she meets Manas, a young person from a background that is in broad terms similar to hers, but in its essence, very different. Manas is a grounded, lovingly brought up person. He has grown up in a family that has not, like hers, simply lurched along the decades, but has enjoyed the continuity, thoughtfulness and generosity of generations -the recipe that produces contented human beings.

How Shaheen lets go of her past, without losing what is real and precious, and how she weaves a new life, is the story of 3 Zakia Mansion.

Altered States
by Anita Brookner
Standing on a railway platform in a Swiss resort town, sensibly clad in his Burberry raincoat and walking shoes, a man thinks he may be looking at the woman for whom he ruined his life many years earlier. Alan Sherwood, a quiet English solicitor, remembers back to a time when he stepped briefly out of character to indulge in a liaison with Sarah Miller, an intriguing but heartless distant relative--only to find himself in a series of absurd situations that culminated in his marriage to Sarah's clinging, childlike friend Angela.

With her compassionate portrait of a man who has paid a terrible price for his folly, Anita Brookner gives us a novel that it at once harrowing and humane. In the traditions of Henry James and Thomas Mann, Altered States is a beautifully rendered tale of loneliness, guilt, and erotic obsession.
