9780099553953: The Artist of Disappearance

A triptych of beautifully crafted novellas make up Anita Desai's exquisite new book. Set in modern India, but where history still casts a long shadow, the stories move beyond the cities to places still haunted by the past, and to characters who are, each in their own way, masters of self-effacement.

Rich and evocative, remarkable in their clarity and sensuous in their telling, these stories remind us of the extraordinary yet delicate power of this pre-eminent writer.

"Elegantly paced and smartly crafted" (Fatima Bhutto Financial Times)

"Anita Desai writes exquisitely" (Allan Massie Scotsman)

"Bewitchingly beautiful" ( The Times)
