Orange Award for New Writers nominee Farooki returns with this luminous new work about love and its powerful hold across time and place.
From the Publisher:
Abandoning her privileged life in England and husband of less than a year, Aruna Ahmed returns to her native Singapore, where she remembers the death of her father, her failed relationship with her best friend and a complicated psychological diagnosis she has tried to ignore.
Annotation:
After receiving a note from a dying poet, Aruna, a Bengali doctor living in London, abandons her husband and flies back to Singapore to face the demons that haunt her past: a history of mental illness and drug abuse, a tragic miscarriage, and the lover whom she walked out on years before. HALF LIFE has a powerful narrative and emotional momentum as it shows Aruna grappling with her split identities and cultures.

Praise

"Lovers of literary fiction will not want to miss this vibrant, moving novel from the gifted Farooki." - Kristine Huntley 04/01/2010
