The book elucidates Anita Desai's stream of consciousness technique, her maturity and psychological point of view in handling the charcters in her novels. It voices the unvoiced thoughts of Desai's charcters, announces their psychic staes by giving an inkling to their psychological world, whose identities are ripped up, thoughts and emotions are infected and perturbed. The book asserts evolution and pattern of positive growth in Desai's later fiction. One should salute and say hats off to the novelist who has set the tone of confidence to the modern woman through her characters who confront the thorns of life with grit and determination and embark on a victorious voyage. Thus the book explains that how Desai advocates the message of inner assertion, adaptation, assimilation, synthesis, reconcilation through her characters.
