Book Review: Sleeping on Jupiter by Anuradha Roy
A novel that stands out for its restraint and practically flawless storytelling
There are stories that reveal their multiple facets slowly, chapter building upon chapter leading up to a great truth or a startling reveal in the end. Then there are stories that serve up a shattered glass ball right in the beginning, and the narrative must be pieced together from its separate fragments. Anuradha Roy’s Sleeping On Jupiter is a novel that manages to do both.
