Touching and wonderfully funny, In Custody is woven around the yearnings and calamities of a small-town scholar in the north of India. An impoverished college lecturer, Deven, sees a way to escape from the meanness of his daily life when he is asked to interview India's greatest Urdu poet, Nur - a project that can only end in disaster.

Review:

"A major attempt to tackle serious themes... extraordinarily rich in incident and detail." ( Sebastian Faulks)

"Anita Desai's most subtle and mature work to date... She retains an unforced and powerful ease in conveying the colour and sounds and sensations of Indian life." ( Times Literary Supplement)

"A wry, gently humorous novel, full of wisdom and restraint... The author chronicles India lovingly but it would be a mistake to think of her simply as an Indian writer, for her themes are universal" ( Financial Times)

Book Description:

‘A remarkable piece of work… A magnificent novel’ Salman Rushdie, Observer
