Synopsis of Semi-apes:
Heera, a clinical psychologist, pursues meaning, coherence and integrity. In unearthing memories of her childhood and adolescence, she takes us to the bleakest corners of her family life. She lets us peer into the incongruences of an insular society, and witness how they can force a creator into servitude. Follies, superstition, tradition and unquestioned beliefs clog her world, and the only means of escape is to destroy and recreate.
"The voice of the narrator, Heera, transported me on an uninterrupted journey till the last page. She made me suffer and reflect. I would have liked to hear her a bit more." (Translated from French) Sandrine K on Kindle Amazon.
