Description

"An irresistible novel that hurls forward at breathtaking speed toward an unpredictable climax." --Thrity Umrigar, bestselling author of The Space Between Us

"Beautifully written, atmospheric...contains entire worlds. I couldn't put it down." --Gary Shteyngart, bestselling author of Super Sad True Love Story and Absurdistan

Miss Timmins' School for Girls is the truly dazzling debut of a major novelist, Nayana Currimbhoy. Set in India during the monsoon of 1974, it tells the story of a conventional young girl who leaves her cloistered small town home to teach at a remote boarding school run by British Missionaries. Part coming-of-age novel, part suspenseful murder mystery, Miss Timmins' School for Girls is a brilliant evocation of a colorful time and place--India during the love, drug, and rock 'n' roll era--complete with the sights, sounds, and music of the period seamlessly woven into the page-turning tale.
