At the heart of this compelling novel lies a disappearance, and a crime which may have been committed many years before the story opens. When Mala, old and notoriously crazy, arrives at the Paradise Alms House, she is placed in the tender care of Tyler, a gay male nurse, and an extraordinary relationship begins to unfold. Who is Mala Ramchandin, and what lies behind her madness? In telling the many stories of Mala adventurer, protector, recluse and madwoman - we learn the truth about her father, Chandin, the once-favoured child taken in by missionary colonialists; her mother and her white lover, Lavinia Thoroughly; her lost sister, Asha; and the mysterious but kindly visitors Otoh and Ambrose Mohanty. Combining diverse storytelling traditions, Shani Mootoo's luminous writing explores identity, gender and violence in a celebration of our capacity to love, and to survive cruelty and despair.
