Book Overview

‘Here, indeed, is a novel well worth remembering’–India Today

‘This is Nair’s fourth book and there is no doubt about one thing: she gets better with each one. It’s a story told at an
unhurried pace by an accomplished writer’–The Hindu Literary Review

Meera is happily submerged in the role of corporate wife and writer of cookbooks. Then, one day, her husband fails to come home. Overnight, she becomes responsible not just for her children Nayantara and Nikhil, but also her mother Saro, her grandmother Lily, and the running of Lilac House, their rambling old family home in Bangalore.

Professor J.A. Krishnamurthy or Jak, cyclone studies expert, survivor of one marriage and several other encounters, has only recently returned from America. In a bedroom in his house lies his nineteen-year-old daughter Smriti, a tragic embodiment of memory and past violence. What happened on her holiday in the small beachside town in Tamil Nadu to make her so? The police will not help, Smriti’s friends have vanished, and a wall of silence and fear surrounds the incident. But Jak cannot rest till he gets to the truth.

By a series of coincidences, Meera and Jak find their lives turning and twisting together, with the unpredictability and sheer inevitability of a cyclone. And as the days pass, fresh beginnings appear where there seemed to be only endings. Delicately crafted and beautifully told, Lessons in Forgetting is a heartwarming story of redemption, forgiveness and second chances.
