Synopsis

Another Country by Anjali Joseph

Longlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize, this is a superb second novel from the author of the multiple-award winning 'Saraswati Park'. Twenty-something Leela is trying to figure out what to do next, who to fall in love with and where she belongs in the world. The problem is that no matter where she goes - Paris, London, Bombay - or what she does - teaching or temping, dating or committing - life doesn't appear to offer any straightforward answers. A poignant, evocative journey over two continents and through the adult spheres of work, sex and convenient friendships, Another Country is about growing up, moving on and discovering that what you really want is very different from what you thought it would be.

Reviews

'Beautifully delineated...The writing throughout is cool and clear, and whilst the overall tone of the novel is hauntingly melancholic, it is also distinguished by a refreshingly abrasive wit'
Peter Parker, Sunday Times

'Joseph has an unerring instinct for detail that brings a scene to life ... Her descriptions ... are gorgeously vivid'
Sunday Telegraph

'Joseph's writing is rich and original. She can describe silences and what is left unsaid between her characters just as well as she describes what they do and say'
Observer

'A readable and entertaining book'
Guardian

'Subtle and affecting'
Catherine Taylor, Sunday Telegraph Books of the Year

'Joseph's eye for the myriad disappointments of young professional life is excruciatingly accurate, especially in the London section... Joseph is a skilled observer'
Metro
