Abstract

The Inheritance of Loss is more a book about the migrant experience. The plot is essentially about disorientation as a result of dislocation and displacement and the accompanying lack of sympathy resulting in feeling of being dispossessed. The characters feel the pull of the margin all the time thereby struggling to decide between the choice of moving out or remaining there. A sense of alienation and loss is always the immigrant's lifelong companion though they left their shores for a sense of economic or social or professional fulfillment.
