Each story in author Shobha Rao's collection centers around the tumultuous 1947 division of British India into
modern-day India and Pakistan. Set in vastly different parts of the two countries, from stark refugee camps to the
lush verandas of the British Raj, the stories paint a vivid picture of the human cost of the Partition. We talk with
the Bay Area author about her debut collection of short stories, titled "An Unrestored Woman."
