The Glassblower's Breath Hardcover – August 1, 1993. Gupta plunges us deep into the tumultous psyche of her heroine, a brilliant young woman whose mind is more alive to possibilities than wary of consequences.
The Glassblower's Breath Hardcover – August 1, 1993. by. Sunetra Gupta (Author). Educated and well traveled, she is beginning to map out the course of her life, but there are those who would impose their own agendas upon her. Marrying, settling into a home, and assuming the guardianship of an orphaned niece seem to promise a satisfying and rewarding future, but these acts demand fateful choices that lead to startling consequences - with little room for human frailities.
The Glassblower's Breath book. Rather than craft a story as convention dictates, Sunetra Gupta lays bare a young Indian woman’s unremitting stream of consciousness while she similarly refuses to do what convention dictates. Daydreams, pipe dreams and gauzy memories are amalgamated into a rambling narrative, giving the reader an almost ethereal soliloquy that will either frustrate or delight.
The glassblower's breath. Books for People with Print Disabilities. Internet Archive Books. The heroine of The Glassblower's Breath is a brilliant young Indian woman caught between her own almost limitless capacity for experience - emotional, intellectual, sexual - and the desire of the men in her life to capture and define her. The landscapes of three great cities teeming with urban menace - Calcutta, New York and London - form an almost surreal back drop for this unsettling tale of an intelligent woman struggling but failing to conform to society's blueprints for marriage, family and friendships.
