Winner of the Desmond Elliott Prize 2011. If you have read books set in India, then you must add 'Saraswati Park' to your canon. If you haven't made that step feeling, perhaps, that India is a different world, far removed from your own experience and comprehension, then this is a great place to start your journey. After only two or three pages you will be transported into human thoughts and feelings that are common to your own and easy on the imagination. In fact, you will love this book. 'His shirt was crisp; it hung at a polite distance from his body'. A tremendous first novel from an exciting young author recently chosen as one of the Telegraph's '20 under 40' best UK writers. Sheer delight.
