The Much praised, beautifully written, colourful tale peopled by madcap characters, in which a young girl goes to Bombay to marry a man she has never met

Synopsis

Last Song of Dusk by Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi

As young Anuradha boards a train for Bombay, where she will marry a man she has never met, peacocks appear out of nowhere to serenade her. Such a dazzling departure can only lead to an uncertain but exciting future. Sure enough, across her path come a host of colourful characters: Nandini, the artist who walks on water and has a passion for panthers; Mr Bunkusdaas, the father of Bollywood cinema; Diva bai, the sinister old woman rumoured to have fed her sister to crocodiles; and Percival Worthington, the aristocratically limp son of the governor of Bombay.

Together they conjure a forgotten world of betrayed love, of dangerous desires and unfathomable sorrow - creating an Indian melody that will haunt you long after the tale is done.

Reviews

'A magical debut..Madcap characters shimmy across the pages, throwing out slangy witticisms with insouciant charm. Delicious' Elle
