5.0 out of 5 stars ...a deeply touching and thought provoking story
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on 20 August 2020
If I had to choose one word to describe One Part Woman by Perumal Murugan that word would be defining. Defining is a process marked by gradual changes through interactions both physical and verbal that can build up or tear down. This is Kali’s and Ponna’s story of that building up between them on the inside and the tearing down from outside forces.

This is a deeply touching and thought provoking story of one young South Indian couple starting out and anxiously waiting to be blessed with a baby. It seems everything revolves upon having children from the way both families see this young couple; but also the neighbors, community and workers. The silence and the not so silence was at times heart wrenching.

There were beautiful tender moments between Kali and Ponna and how they saw themselves. These reflections were poignant and well written...almost musical at times. Then there were bad times when I wanted to reach into the pages and just shake some sense into both of them. So many forces in play here...cultural mores, religious beliefs, a system designed to keep people in place which opened my mind’s eye to see another world and a way of life that I may not have experienced otherwise. One Part Woman would make a great Book Club read.

One Part Woman ends abruptly and I was left dangling and wondering what happened or what could have happened. My brain ticked off several possibilities; but being unfamiliar with the world in which this story takes place, I floundered so I played “what if” and wrote my own ending. However, Murugan has written two novella endings with Trial by Silence and A Lonely Harvest; two possibilities to choose from or write your own.
