Product description


Elizabeth Flock takes us on an intimate cruise on the shifting sea of the heart, in the best book set in Bombay that I've read in years. Flock's total access to her characters, and her highly sympathetic and nonjudgmental gaze, prove that love and literature know no borders. Easily the most intimate account of India that I've read, and of value to anybody that believes in love and marriage. (Suketu Mehta, author of Maximum City)

Flock is a careful, diplomatic interpreter of modern Indian life. Distilling large swaths of culture and history into brief, well-deployed asides, she keeps her focus on the couples themselves. What's extraordinary about "The Heart Is a Shifting Sea" is the apparent ease with which Flock has unlocked these marriages. The reader is taken into the heart of their domestic lives, and allowed to linger as Flock gently excavates the childhood superstitions, religious beliefs and political upheavals that have left a mark on these particular unions. The result is deeply engrossing. (Mythili G Rao The New York Times)

This remarkable debut is so deeply reported, elegantly written and profoundly transporting that it reads like a novel you can't put down. It's both a nuanced and intimate evocation of Indian culture, and a provocative and exciting meditation on marriage itself. (Katie Roiphe, author of The Violet Hour)

... an intimate look at life in India, yet its intricately reported, novelistic portraits of marriage will resonate regardless of where you live. This book will keep you up reading deep into the night; it will make you ignore your loved ones, shirk your responsibilities. It is that good. (Peggy Orenstein, author of Girls & Sex)

Elizabeth Flock has invented a new way of telling a love story. It's part journalism, part true fable, and it takes you deep inside a country. Whatever it is, I couldn't stop reading it. (Pamela Druckerman, author of Bringing Up Bébé)

Book Description

A moving and powerful portrait of three marriages in present day Mumbai, often revealed in their most private and intimate details. It is through this level of detail that these stories are able to say something about why marriages work or fail in India or any country or cultural context.
