Close to the Bone

By Lisa Ray

Unflinching and deeply moving, Lisa Ray traces her serendipitous life, from her childhood in Canada as the biracial daughter of an Indian man and Polish woman, to her rise as a Bollywood star; from her battle with a rare and incurable cancer, to her journey to find identity and belonging, both in the world and in her own body. Transporting and atmospheric, it takes readers across the globe: Toronto in the 1970s, the intense, frenetic streets of Bombay, and the lush sensuality of Colombo. At once charming and wise, intimate and gut-wrenchingly honest, Close to the Bone is a revealing travelogue of the soul — a brave and inspiring story of a life lived on one’s own terms.
