About this title
Based on the life of the middle class intellectuals of Calcutta, it is an unforgettable story of a Bohemian brother and his two sisters caught in the cross-currents of changing social values. In many ways the story reflects a vivid picture of India's social transition - a phase in which the older elements are not altogether dead, and the emergent ones not fully evolved.
"...has a vitality that highlights a compulsive creative talent...There is a convincing fury about this novel." -- Sunday Times, London"...succeeds in creating a living, imaginative and eloquent impression of India today." --The Times, London
