“Memory is the only lasting possession we have,” begins Zarina. In the pages that follow, she reflects on her life—her family’s experience during the 1947 Partition of India, her long career as an artist, and the many cities that she has called home. The book includes never-published material, and chronicles the artist’s travels and life around the world through a collection of essays, poems, artworks, and personal photographs.
