"Shashi Deshpande, one of the foremost Indian English novelists, is the
winner of the prestigious Sahitya Akademi Award for her novel 'That Long
Silence'. Her novels portray the middle-class Indian women who is
undergoing a gradual transformation in terms of her position in society.
The present volume offers the possibility of drawing certain common
patterns in the growth and development of women characters who make
conscious efforts that ultimately lead them to attain their selfhood and
identity, marking a new beginning in their lives. The book evaluates the
entire range of Deshpande's fiction, including the recently-published
novels 'Moving On' and 'In the Country of Deceit'. It makes a rich
contribution to the corpus of Women's Studies, Sociology and Indian English
