Description
About the Book

It starts with the boy’s perceptive and eccentric cousin Tridib, who give the boy worlds to travel in and eyes to see with long before he ever leaves Calcutta. As the boy grows he finds himself sucked into history: his grandmother stuck in an age-old family feud; Tridib and his family in England in 1993; their English friends whose daughter’s love for Tridib can only end in tragedy. All the while private upheavals are mirrored by public turmoil-the Blitz in war-time London, civil strife in post-Partition Dhaka, a riot in Calcutta.

This novel focuses on the meaning of political freedom in the modern world and the force of nationalism, the Shadow Line we draw between people and nations, which is both an absurd illusion and a source of terrifying violence.

The four critical essays in this edition will prove helpful and stimulating for both the student and the general reader. This is the first edition of the novel to include aids for university under-graduates.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
