This chapter discusses the death of the author’s mother. The essay is devoted partly to a description of the rituals of death—Hindu funerals—but the author is also detailing a writer’s response to grief and mourning. Writers might anticipate in what they write the suffering that death will bring, but, as this essay shows, even while reality conforms to what has been imagined, there are other surprises.
