Renowned Tamil author Perumal Murugan is back with another thoughtful and tender story, this time paying an homage to his mother in Amma.

Renowned Tamil author Perumal Murugan is back with another thoughtful and tender story, this time paying an homage to his mother in Amma. A collection of 22 chapters/essays that revolve around the writer’s mother is a must read for every reader.

Perumal Murugan’s tender yet truthful essays capture the life of a strong, independent and extraordinary woman: his mother. She raised her children with the income from just a few acres of land that she managed on her own, tending to the cattle and crops with maternal concern, all the while minding her unruly husband. Every obligation met, all accounts squared up, each meal cooked to satiate the tongue and heart—Amma never rested, not even when bedridden with Parkinson’s. She lived a farmer’s life and died a farmer’s death.

Amma is a homage to a way of life and values—simplicity, honesty and hard work—lost to us today. Peppered with unsentimental nostalgia and delightful humour, and vividly documenting village and farming life in the Kongu region, Amma tugs at generational memory. Murugan’s non-fiction writing, his first to appear in English, is as deeply affecting as his fiction.
