The Young Woman from Punjab

Abstract

'The Young Woman from Punjab' is an excerpt from Carole Maso's recently published novel Mother and Child (Counterpoint Press, 2012). It follows a mother and child as they roam increasingly dangerous psychic terrain, struggling to stay alive in the face of increasingly insurmountable odds. In this scene the mother brings close the things that terrify her most, conjuring visitations from another mother and child, shadowy versions of themselves who trail them for a time.
