What unfolds is a mesmerizing family saga:  the imperious great-grandmother Elsa and her husband, an Indian poet, whose marriage is as unconventional as the movement they help to found- Baby, their cheerfully pragmatic daughter, married to the aloof English diplomat Graeme- bemused and brooding Renata, Baby and Graemes daughter, married to an idle dreamer- and finally Henry, Renatas son, who in many ways bears the legacy of all that has gone before.

Their lives--and that of the movements elusive yet ineluctable founder, known only as the Master--intertwine, diverge, and collide with each other in a masterfully orchestrated story spanning the twentieth century and several continents.By turns brilliantly satiric, insightful, and profoundly moving, Shards Of Memory is a beautifully wrought tale of love and devotion, of family and faith, and of the complex nature of memory itself--a literary tour de force from one of the most distinguished novelists of our time.From the Trade Paperback edition.
