Roy’s previous book “Sleeping on Jupiter” was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize and won the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature last year.
Poulomi Chatterjee, Editor-in-Chief of Hachette India, says: “This is a beautifully crafted novel that embodies the restraint that is quintessentially Anuradha — in its evocation of loss, pain and love.”
