9780060501532: The Point of Return

A story about home, family and country, written with searing honesty and insight.Set in the last decades of the twentieth century in a remote and hilly part of India, this is the moving and beautifully written story of a father and a son. Dr Dam and Babu have lived for years as strangers; strangers tied by blood, strangers in the same home, both puzzled and resentful. But as his father weakens and wearies of life, Babu is drawn closer to him. Before long he finds himself embarking on a great journey, an odyssey through the memories of his father, his family and his country. From the great tides of violence and fear that sweep a land, to the delicate core of one man's being, Point of Return traces with great delicacy the many hidden stories of India.

Book Description HarperCollins, United States, 2004. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Set in the remote, northeastern hills of India, The point of return revolves around the father-son relationship of a willful, curious boy, Babu, and Doctor Dam, an enigmatic product of British colonial rule and Nehruvian nationalism. Told in reverse chronological order, the novel examines an India where the ideals that brought freedom from colonial rule are beginning to crack under the pressure of new rebellions and conflicts. For Dr. Dam and Babu, this has meant living as strangers in the same home, puzzled and resentful, tied only by blood. As the father grows weary and old and the son tries to understand him, clashes between ethnic groups in their small town show them to be strangers to their country as well. Before long, Babu finds himself embarking on a great journey, an odyssey through the memories of his father, his family, and his nation. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780060501532
