Gabriel Packard

The Painted Ocean

€ 13.99


So says eleven year old Shruti of her broken home in suburban middle England. But hopes of her mother`s affection are in vain: speaking little English, and fluent in only Hindi and Punjabi, Shruti`s mother is lost, and soon falls prey to family pressure to remarry. To find another husband means returning to India and leaving Shruti behind.

Meanwhile at school a new arrival, the indomitable Meena, dispenses with Shruti`s bullying problems and transforms her day to day life. Desperate for companionship Shruti latches on to Meena to the point of obsession, following her through high school and on to university. But when Meena invites Shruti to join her on holiday in India, she has no idea how dangerous her obsession will turn out to be...

Gabriel Packard`s THE PAINTED OCEAN has been described by Colum McCann `as fearless tour de force. It is a rare achievement - an emotionally rich work of literature, delivered in the form of a gripping, page-turning story. The depiction of a British Indian childhood and adolescence is utterly compelling, as is the allegorical exploration of the human condition.`
