‘I really enjoyed Ashok Chopra’s memoirs and I look
forward very much to reading his first venture into fiction’

‘A simple, gripping tale which unfolds across a turbulent period of modern Indian history. The strength of this novel lies in its fascinating mix of complex characters. Through expressive dialogue and eloquent description, Chopra takes his readers on a memorable journey across terrain that is both familiar and surprising’
