“Could fulfilment ever be felt as deeply as loss? Romantically she decided that love must surely reside in the gap between desire and fulfilment, in the lack, not the contentment. Love was the ache, the anticipation, the retreat, everything around it but the emotion itself.”
– Kiran Desai
Public and participative discussion on Kiran Desai’s acclaimed The Inheritance of Loss (2006).
