Review: Devi S. Laskar’s challenging novel ‘Circa’ captures the ’70s-’80s Indian American immigrant experience

Laskar’s latest novel, “Circa,” published recently by Mariner Books is intriguing, from the get-go. “Circa” narrates the family life of Heera Sanyal, an Indian American teen living in Raleigh, North Carolina, who arrived into the world on Halloween 1969, a few months after Neil Armstrong walked on the moon.
