1 Geetanjali Singh Chanda
Indian Women in the House of Fiction
Zubaan; New Delhi, India; 8189884107 / 9788189884109; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Indian Women in the House of Fiction explores the quiet negotiation of women and the kinds of homes they wish to inhabit. The house is not merely a backdrop in Indian women’s fiction but almost a character that bears witness to the changes taking place in the protagonists’ lives. The architectural and social spaces of havelis, bungalows and apartments impose their own unique patterns of women’s relationships inside and outside the domestic space. In these fictional homes, women find ways to transform restrictive segregated spaces – like the zenana of a haveli – into a potentially empowering ‘womenspace’ that is carried over into both bungalows and apartments. The current popularity of Indo-English literature notwithstanding, the anxiety of conveying an authentic Indianness in what is sometimes still regarded as an “auntie tongue” shadows some authors and their work. Notions of Indianness are preserved, taught and performed in the home and it is also the site upon which concerns about identity, language, nationalism, family or community values and gender roles are played out. In this book, Geetanjali Singh Chanda maps Indian English women’s literature in India and the diaspora while situating it in the larger framework of world literatures. Contents 1. Introduction 2. Haveli 3. Bungalow 4. Apartments and Alternate Spaces 5. Women-only Homes 6. India As Home 7. Diaspora Homes 8. Conclusion Select Bibliography Printed Pages: 360. 027053

2 Geetanjali Singh Chanda
Indian Women in the House of Fiction
Zubaan/Atlantic Publishers & Distributors Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2014; 9789383074730; Softcover; New; 
In her detailed readings of a wide range of Indian writers -- including Anita Desai, Shashi Deshpande, Anita Nair, Jhumpa Lahiri and many others -- Geetanjali Singh Chanda focuses on domestic spaces in women's fiction. The house is not merely a backd rop, but often almost a character itself, one that bears witness to the changes in the protagonists' lives. Chanda shows how women in these fictional homes find ways to transform restrictive, segregated spaces into a potentially empowering "womenspace," one that can be found in bungalows and apartments alike. The book also analyses the anxiety that still accompanies writing about India in English, and the many concerns about identity, language, nationalism, family, and community that are played out in the home.
