"The striking quality of this book is its brilliant psychoanalysis of the
behavioural patterns of women protagonists painted on a single canvas of
universal womanhood by two different authors, cutting across continental
boundaries. The selected authors Shobhaa De and Bharati Mukherjee are
writers from divers backgrounds. The former is a well-known socialite and a
contemporary Indian writer while the latter a name to reckon with the
Diaspora Studies. The book is the result of intensive research and
exploration of the similarities and dissimilarities of the women
protagonists entangled in cultural sexual, social, political conflicts and
above all in psychological inner conflicts of the self. The extensive work
done by the author breaks fresh ground in the backdrop of feminist studies
and proves to be valuable addition to the field of Comparative Literature."
