Author: Anjali Joseph
Blurb: Longlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize, this is a superb second novel from the author of the multiple-award winning ‘Saraswati Park’.
Paris, London, Bombay: three cities form a backdrop to a journey through Leela’s twenties at the dawn of the new millennium, as she learns to negotiate the world, work, relationships and sex, and find some measure of authenticity.
Sharp, funny, and melancholy, Another Country brings a cool eye to friendship, love, and the idea of belonging to a place or another person. As with her debut, the Desmond Elliott Prize-winning Saraswati Park, Anjali Joseph’s beautiful, clear writing captures exactly the anxieties of a young woman searching for her role in the world, and the places in which she goes looking.
Sample: On way.
