ABOUT THE BOOK

From dances, to country music, to mouthwatering cuisine, to the Indian Railways... follow the lives of the Anglo-Indian community of India in all their complex wonder. Monica falls in love with a boy from an orthodox Tamilian family, Anne and Angeline are abandoned by the men they trust, a school teacher takes his class out on a picnic, a military doctor recounts the tale of death and love, a young girl finally rebels against her overbearing mother, the shy school boy meets the love of his life and an old lady remembers her encounters with the otherworld... Betrayal, unrequited love, human aspiration and failure come full circle as the characters are united in friendship, music and shared journeys in a set of twelve interconnected stories that explore the human condition from the point of view of this enduring and unique community.

Spanning three decades, and set across the city of Chennai and the hill stations of the Nilgiris, discover a world where love, bobo curry and laughter triumph over sorrow, betrayal and regrets in an engaging and gentle read.
