            A searing debut novel about mothers and daughters, obsession and betrayal 'Poignant and economical, this intergenerational story speaks of motherhood and memory, love and the language for it, trauma and truth-searching' Vogue India 'Crystalline and almost surgical, a compulsively... readable examination of toxic relationships and the ties that bind us' Sharlene Teo, author of Ponti In her youth, Tara was wild. She abandoned her loveless marriage to join an ashram, endured a brief stint as a beggar (mostly to spite her affluent parents), and spent years chasing after a dishevelled, homeless 'artist' - all with her young child in tow. Now she is forgetting things, mixing up her maid's wages and leaving the gas on all night, and her grown-up daughter is faced with the task of caring for a woman who never cared for her. This is a love story and it is a story about betrayal. But not between lovers - between mother and daughter. Sharp as a blade and laced with caustic wit, Burnt Sugar unpicks the slippery, choking cord of memory and myth that binds two women together, making and unmaking them endlessly.

            A full-scale investigation of the controversial and often misunderstood science of attachment theory, inspired by the author's own experience as a parent and daughter. When award-winning editor, writer, researcher, and longtime Zen student Bethany Saltman gave birth to her daught...er, Azalea, she felt like there was something 'off' about her experience. She knew she loved her daughter, but would oftentimes be angry, short on patience, even unkind. She went in search of the reasons why, and how to better understand herself, her daughter, and their relationship. With the intensity of her spiritual pursuits, Saltman launched a broad inquiry into the science of attachment, a field of developmental psychology that answers the question of why - from an evolutionary point of view - love exists between parents and children. Specifically, Saltman focused on the data from a famous laboratory procedure, the 'Strange Situation', used around the world by scientists as the gold standard for measuring attachment security. A child and caregiver enter a room with two chairs and ordinary toys. Through a series of orchestrated comings and goings, the nature of the pair's relationship is revealed. What Saltman saw by studying the Strange Situation is that love is unbreakable. Each and every one of us - including her - is built for it. In this intimate, rigorous, and deeply personal rendering, Saltman boldly asks science to answer to love, and discovers that while our behaviour as parents is important, attachment research insists that what matters most is the way we think about our attachments, transmitted mind to mind from generation to generation. This is excellent news. After all, as Saltman's decades of Zen practice tell her and her readers, the one thing completely within our power to change is our minds. Readers will also be given the tools with which to interpret and better understand their own relationships. More than just a memoir or biography, Strange Situation offers fresh insi
