Cry, The Peacock is the story of a young girl, Maya, obsessed by a childhood prophecy of disaster. The author builds up an atmosphere of tension as torrid and oppressive as a stiffling Indian summer, both in the crowded, colourful cities and the strangely beautiful countryside.

Author

Anita Desai was born in 1937 in Mussoorie but spent much of her early life in Delhi, where she also received her B.A. in English Literature and graduated with honours from the University of Delhi.

Review

Maya's extreme sensitivity never alienates the reader because it is rendered in terms of measurable human loneliness... How well Desai does in the business of carrying her narrative through to a satisfactory, even explosive end. — The Times Literary Supplement, London

Anita Desai creates a stained glass landscape with details of images, colours and odours... Cry, The Peacock is the product of a mellowed craftswoman. — Statesman
