Additional Notes

From The Publisher*The memoir of a South Asian immigrant to Canada, whose formative years in India were steeped in a reigning patriarchal culture of honor and shame, in which the burden of the family's good standing rests on the sexual purity of girls and women. Papp traces her lonely, poignant, often risk-charged struggle to free herself from the oppressive code.
