The Growing Years is a novel that deals with the life of a mother living in the shadow of death and, also the painful, exploratory years of adolescent children. It delves with a touch of humour into the complex psychology of children and adults as they age towards maturity and death, unwilling participants.
The novel also traverses the depths of an Anglo Indian culture left behind by the colonials who quit India. A culture that has been nurtured and blossoms in the gardens of a hybrid race that still closet themselves in the bungalows of their minds.
