Ruth Prawer Jhabvala (Author). It's the story of a family's relationship with an Indian guru. Whether this spiritual advisor is a charlatan or a true holy man is never completely clear, but his impact on the family reverberates over four generations.

Ruth Prawer Jhabvala was born in Cologne, Germany on May 7, 1927. She had to emigrate to England in 1939 with her family because of their Jewish faith. She earned a degree in English literature at London University. In 1951, she married an Indian architect, moved to India and raised three daughters. She began writing in 1955 and has written a dozen novels. Several novels were set in India such as The Nature of Passion, Esmond in India, Travelers and The Householder, which was also her first motion picture project. Shakespeare Wallah was her first collaboration on an original project.

Jhabvala (Poet and Dancer, 1993, et. now limns, in a family saga with a difference, a disappointingly enervated four- generational quest for spiritual fulfillment. The time is the present, with flashbacks to the years following WW I, and the setting is New York City, but Jhabvala's characters seem dated echoes of other lives, belonging more to a sepia-tinted photograph than any recognizable place.

Shards of Memory book. Ruth Prawer Jhabvala does a nice job sneaking in all of these complicated relationships (to people, to place, to family) without ever letting the novel get murky or confusing. She does love a little mystery; her "Master" figure and the work of that social movement remain elusive, which somehow works in A quiet, sprawling book. It felt very British while actually being set in so many places-England, Mumbai, New York-and featuring people from so many other places (Germany, Russia, maybe Kabul?).

I've read a number of Jhabvala's novels and short stories and this is by far my favorite. It's the story of a family's relationship with an Indian guru. Whether this spiritual advisor is a charlatan or a true holy man is never completely clear, but his impact on the family reverberates over four generations.
My only complaint about the book is that it suddenly shifts narrative tone about a third of the way through, from the grandmother's first-person account to a third-person tale focussing primarily on her grandson. Other than that, a wonderful, engrossing story about family, spirituality and memory.

An insightful novel that shows family relationships across generations. Jhabvala also does a superb job of portraying the extreme and at times ridiculous subservience of some of the family members to the words of a so-called spiritual "Master." The resemblance of the "Master" to Gurdjieff is quite striking, in my opinion.

This is a really lovely book. Ruth writes very lightly and speaks eloquently through her character. As with all memories, you feel the story is imperfect. Sections are missed and then recalled in a very beautiful manner which imitates our own flawed memories. More than anything else, the book shows the unity of the generations and expresses the passions within families.
