A hugely charged fiction debut a couple of younger girl in India, and the affection that either shatters and transforms her

She is twenty, stressed in New Delhi. Her mom has died; her father has left for Singapore.

He is some years older, simply again to India from New York.

When they meet in a café one afternoon, she—lonely, hungry for event, craving to wreck freed from tradition—casts apart her fears and throws herself headlong right into a love affair, person who takes her the place she hasn't ever been before.

Told in a voice without delay gritty and lyrical, mournful and frank, a nasty personality marks the arriving of an astonishingly talented new author. it truly is an unforgettable hymn to a perilous, exhilarating urban, and a portrait of hope and its outcomes as undying because it is common.

Очередная книга для любителей поиграть на нервах у родителей, для девочек во дворе, и так просто. . для себя. ..
Представлять вам группу The Offspring я не стану - нет смысла. У меня даже мысли в голову не пробираются о том, что кто-то может не знать этих музыкантов и тем более их альбом Americana, вышедший в 1998 году.
Альбом буквально за считаные мгновения стал супер-успешным. Кстати, он немного отличался (да и отличается теперь) от их остальных альбомов. Здесь они стебали уже не только хэви-метал, но и все музыкальные стили, которые им только удалось воспроизвести. В текстах появился какой-то юмор, но в большинстве своём они оставались такими же серьёзными и трагичными. Offspring'и производили впечатление весьма наивных провинциальных музыкантов, которые даже не понимают, насколько смешно они звучат. За это их и полюбило новое поколение реальных провинциальных подростков, звучавших так же смешно и мысливших столь же серьёзно.

Как и всегда партии голоса и гитары + табы. ..

Example text

Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, events or locales is entirely coincidental. 1 Contents Cover Title Page Copyright Prologue Chapter One Chapter Two Chapter Three A Note About the Author My boyfriend died when I was twenty-one. His body was left lying broken on the highway out of Delhi while the sun rose in the desert to the east. I wasn’t there, I never saw it. But plenty of others saw, in the trucks that passed by without stopping and from the roadside dhaba where he’d been drinking all night.

Not spectacularly, not extraordinarily so, but more than enough to survive. The economy is opening up. Jobs are found. Land is bought and sold. Then come the cars, the washing machines, the televisions, the cousins sent off to America to study, to become doctors, accountants, lawyers and bankers. All the bases are covered. But we do nothing, go nowhere. Though my father still sends money, we are displaced, shoved aside. I keep my head down in school and get lost in my dreams, but my mother sits outside it all, the exile, watching the rest of them in silence in the frozen halls of our home, becoming suddenly old, her hair getting tangled in knots.

Statues of gods everywhere, in brass, gold, wood, furniture of the darkest kind, thick red carpets on marble floors. Uncle pours himself a whisky and strolls into his room. The maid is frying onions in the kitchen, singing film songs. Outside you can feel that it’s going to rain, a thunderstorm is coming, rattling the AC, making the pigeons babble nervously on the ledge. She shows me to my room. It is long and thin, lined on one side with white plastic wardrobes. There is a desk and a bed and an old lamp, and just beside the bed a door into a bathroom of my own.
