Saleema Nawaz: "Bone and Bread"

After the death of Sadhana, who dies alone her Montreal apartment, Beena is left to discover a different person than she knew as her sister.
"Bread and Bone" is, it would be fair to say, "much anticipated." Saleema Nawaz has already won acclaim for her writing. One of her short stories won the Journey Prize. "Bone and Bread" is already getting high praise from critics.
