Tourist Season

Author: Enid Shomer
Publisher: Random House
ISBN: 0307492060
Release Date: 2008-12-10
Genre: Fiction

In Tourist Season, award-winning author Enid Shomer offers ten brilliant, richly detailed unforgettable stories of resilient women, aged seventeen to seventy, each at a pivotal point in her life. Their journeys cross distances of place and mind: A middle-aged Floridian who learns that she is the reincarnation of a Buddhist saint takes daring steps on her path to enlightenment; a long-buried secret forces one woman to leave the daughter she deeply loves; a Radcliffe student faces shocking family truths and taboos during the summer of 1966; an unexpected kinship forms between two women who land in a county jail after an excursion to Las Vegas. These travelers wander through shifting emotional landscapes of love, sex, and relationships, and often miss the destinations they’d wished to reach–of insight, connection, and understanding. Whether journeying to new geographical locales or exploring uncharted personal terrain, Tourist Season offers a provocative, engaging, and often humorous road map of the heart and soul. “[When reading Enid Shomer’s stories,] the thing one quickly senses is the will and the voice, someone saying, in effect, ‘Relax, be comfortable, I’m going to take good care of you.’ These are very fine stories.” –James Salter, in Imaginary Men “Beautifully made, surprising and inevitable, wonderfully inventive and deeply true, these stories are full of small, irreverent, straight-faced miracles. They will lead women of all ages to suspect that the best may be yet to come.” ––Pam Houston, author of Cowboys Are My Weakness and Sight Hound From the Trade Paperback edition.

A compelling duet of novellas, in exquisite prose, that capture the nuances of time and place, each one featuring a protagonist who is at heart a dreamer. Tourist Season features Ramchander, a small-time shopkeeper in a Himalayan hill station, whose quiet existence is disrupted when a tourist woman from Mumbai finds a 17th-century antique amidst the paraphernalia of his shop. When he signs up for a project that involves relocating the town's monkeys, which has a disastrous outcome, Ramchander is presented with a momentous dilemma: should he fulfil his romantic yearnings and follow the tourist woman to Mumbai? Or, should he continue his dull life in the hill station, walking the mountains, and running his provision shop? In The River, Girnar, a middling professor of Hindu mythology in Ahmedabad, nurtures a secret ambition of one day becoming a novelist of renown. When the members of his housing society embark on a Ganges pilgrimage, Girnar decides to accompany them. In Benares, he encounters an American reporter, a woman who is writing an article about the polluted river. When he accompanies her to interviews, acting as translator or expounding on the idiosyncrasies of Indian culture, his days become filled with adventure. He dreams of a new life with her, but as she departs on a train to Delhi, Girnar's own words to her come back to haunt him, and he realizes that his true happiness lies elsewhere.
