Shooting Water

Newmarket Press, 2007

"In Shooting Water, Devyani Saltzman recounts her experience straddling the separate worlds of her divorced parents in Canada and India — navigating between two religions (Hindu and Judaism), two traditions, two cultures, and two people — belonging to both and neither at once. This cross-cultural memoir chronicles her life-changing experiences in India and Sri Lanka, the struggle to produce the controversial Oscar-nominated film, and the emergence of a deeper understanding between mother and daughter."
