• A wonderful novel about silence and music, about the partition of a family as well as a nation

    New York Times Book Review
  • A rich Chekhovian novel by one of the most gifted of contemporary Indian writers

    New Yorker
  • Anita Desai has created an entire little civilization here from a fistful of memories, from a patchwork of sickroom dreams and childhood games and fairy tales. Clear Light of Day does what only the very best novels can do; it totally submerges us. It also takes us so deeply into another world that we almost fear we won't be able to climb out again

    Anne Tyler, New York Times
