The journey that leads to Maya’s personal enlightenment includes a trip to Calcutta, where Banerjee perfectly captures the colorful sprawl of Calcutta and its inhabitants.
The journey that leads to Maya’s personal enlightenment includes a trip to Calcutta, where Banerjee perfectly captures the colorful sprawl of Calcutta and its inhabitants. The twists and turns the story takes are not always comfortable, but in the end, the peace that Maya makes with her family and herself is absolutely satisfying and authentic-just like Maya.
Anjali Banerjee manages to capture the dreams and turmoil of Mayasri Mukherjee, the central character of her book in a delightful manner. Maya Running is full of observations that are incredibly mature and adult-like and then suddenly heart-warmingly childish, and often hilarious. A unique story with a dream-like quality that shows a young girl embracing her culture and learning about herself.

Maya Mukherjee doesn't fit in. Now it's the 1970s, and she's a middle schooler in Manitoba, land of moose and snow. She wants to run on the tundra beneath the Northern Lights, make igloos or snow-angels, see John Travolta, and ride elephants through the Bengal jungle the way her great-grandfather did.
Preteen angst about identity and family. I like Anjali Banerjee's other books better. This one was slow going at first.
