Set in an unnamed African country, V. S. Naipaul's A Bend in the River is narrated by Salim, a young man from an Indian family of traders long resident on the coast. He believes The world is what it is; men who are nothing, who allow themselves to become nothing, have no place in it. So he has taken the initiative; left the coast; acquired his own shop in a small, growing city in the continent’s remote interior and is selling sundries – little more than this and that, really – to the natives. This spot, this ‘bend in the river’, is a microcosm of post-colonial Africa at the time of Independence: a scene of chaos, violent change, warring tribes, ignorance, isolation and poverty. And from this rich landscape emerges one of the author’s most potent works – a truly moving story of historical upheaval and social breakdown.

The story of Tunxis Community College is emblematic of the changes seen in higher education in America since the 1960s. Created in 1970, the college is part of the public college system of Connecticut. Its 30-year history is filled with all the successes and pitfalls of any evolving, open-admission institution. Here is not only the factual history but, as well, a collection of "voices" from the people who fashioned a vibrant campus during the last three decades-the students, faculty and staff. Their story is one more example of the new democracy of higher education in America at the end of the twentieth century.

Sabrina and her sister, Samara, are Anglo-Indian girls raised by strong-minded and free-spirited parents. Their father proudly represented Mysore State as a passionate young athlete and their mother, already a successful teacher, chose to pursue her Masters degree in Literature at the age of 50. They were the ideal parents who brought their daughters up to be strong, independent women but at the same time, took care of their needs and were present whenever they needed the support. Who could have guessed that these two solid individuals, who never had the word “can’t” in their vocabulary, would be reduced to mere vegetative states, as the dreaded Parkinson’s disease hit them one after the other? Heartbroken, Sabrina and Samara watch their parents degenerate slowly, with no hope for recovery or an end to their misery. As they go through the trials of life, their growing family struggles to come to terms with Parkinsonism, a disease that presently has no cure. Through all the highs and lows, Sabrina recognizes the value of living in the moment and treasuring the beautiful memories one makes with family—even with a bend in the river of life.
