Set in colonial India in the 1930s, "The Dark Room" portrays a woman in crisis. After fifteen years of marriage to a capricious husband who alternately berates and neglects his family, Savitri takes stock of her life when confronted with his adultery with a glamorous woman from the office. With gentle humor and a keen ear for domestic dialogue, R. K. Narayan shows Savitri striking out for herself in her own very Indian way.
