‘Those who are always acclaiming the "poetic prose" of Ondaatje would do well to study Chaudhuri'



(James Wood Guardian)

‘An extraordinary achievement.’


(Sunday Times)

'This immensely subtle novel both estranges and gently strokes the surface of English and Indian life. I know of nothing in English fiction that begins to resemble it.'

(Tom Paulin)

'Chaudhuri has, like Proust, perfected the art of the moment [and written] masterpieces of intimate observation.'

(Hilary Mantel New York Review of Books)
