The City SonBook - 2014
"Set in his signature and timeless Nepal, Samrat Updhyay has crafted a vivid portrait of a scorned woman's life-long obsession, and the ramifications on an impressionable young man. When Didi discovers that her husband, the Masterji, has been hiding his beautiful lover and their young son Tarun in a nearby city, she takes him back into her grasp and expels his second family. Tarun's mother, heartsick and devastated, slowly begins to lose her mind, and Tarun has no choice but to turn to Didi for the mothering he longs for. But Didi's revenge knows no bounds: she casts a diabolical spell on Tarun--one with devastating consequences for his only chance at true happiness"-- Provided by publisher.
