The heart is a shifting sea : love and marriage in Mumbai by Elizabeth Flock( Sound Recording )
4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 54 libraries worldwide
In the vein of Behind the Beautiful Forevers, an intimate, deeply reported and revelatory examination of love, marriage, and the state of modern India--as witnessed through the lives of three very different couples in today's Mumbai.In twenty-first-century India, tradition is colliding with Western culture, a clash that touches the lives of everyday Indians from the wealthiest to the poorest. While ethnicity, class, and religion are influencing the nation's development, so too are pop culture and technology--an uneasy fusion whose impact is most evident in the institution of marriage.The Heart Is a Shifting Sea introduces three couples whose relationships illuminate these sweeping cultural shifts in dramatic ways: Veer and Maya, a forward-thinking professional couple whose union is tested by Maya's desire for independence; Shahzad and Sabeena, whose desperation for a child becomes entwined with the changing face of Islam; and Ashok and Parvati, whose arranged marriage, made possible by an online matchmaker, blossoms into true love. Though these three middle-class couples are at different stages in their lives and come from diverse religious backgrounds, their stories build on one another to present a layered, nuanced, and fascinating mosaic of the universal challenges, possibilities, and promise of matrimony in its present state.Elizabeth Flock has observed the evolving state of India from inside Mumbai, its largest metropolis. She spent close to a decade getting to know these couples--listening to their stories and living in their homes, where she was privy to countless moments of marital joy, inevitable frustration, dramatic upheaval, and whispered confessions and secrets. The result is a phenomenal feat of reportage that is both an enthralling portrait of a nation in the midst of transition and an unforgettable look at the universal mysteries of love and marriage that connect us all

Emma y yo by Elizabeth Flock( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Al mismo tiempo mordaz, agridulce y conmovedora, Emma y yo es la inolvidable historia de una niña adorablemente precoz y de su determinación de recomponer los fragmentos de una vida hecha añicos. En muchos sentidos, Carrie Parker es como cualquier otra niña de ocho años: le gusta soñar despierta, teme ir al colegio y fantasea con lugares lejanos. Pero ni siquiera su imaginación puede cerrar la puerta a las realidades de su mísero hogar de Carolina del Norte, o ayudarla a proteger a su hermana pequeña, Emma.A veces dolorosamente ingenua, a veces pragmática, Carrie ha quedado marcada por la muerte de un padre al que adoraba, por el desapego de su madre y la violencia de un padrastro alcoholizado. Mediante la invención de una asombrosa vía de supervivencia para Emma y para sí misma, confía en trasformar su vida en algo parecido al mundo de los cuentos que atesora.Pero cuando el plan de su hermana para escapar de casa se frustra, sus vidas dan un giro imprevisto... y un instante perturbador da paso a una verdad insoportable.Narrada con la sencillez y el candor del punto de vista de una niña, Emma y yo es un vívido retrato de una dolorosa pérdida de la inocencia, un espíritu inquebrantable y un increíble coraje: una historia que encontrará resonancias en lectores de todas las edades y bagajes."Tremendamente conmovedora"Kirkus Reviews"Cautivadora. Fascinante. Llegarás a la última página y querrás volver al principio. Elizabeth Flock es una autora a la que no se debe perder de vista"Bookreporter.com ¿Recomendado? Si, claro que si. Vas a encontrar sufrimiento, mucho sufrimiento pero también ese cruel mundo visto a través de los ojos de una niña. Y el final es sorprendente, sin duda lo que menos esperas.Leyendo, tejiendo y cocinando en K
