In a collection of paired stories that examines one of the biggest refugee crises in history, Shobha Rao's debut is a startling glimpse into the psyche of people pushed to the edge. In 1947, the Indian subcontinent is partitioned into two separate countries, India and Pakistan, changing countless lives forever. An Unrestored Woman explores the fault lines in this mass displacement of humanity, especially for women. In paired stories that hail from India and Pakistan to the United States, Italy, and England, we witness the ramifications of the violent uprooting of families, the price they pay over generations, and the uncanny relevance these stories have in our world today.
