The time is 1975. The place is an unnamed city by the sea. The government has just declared a State of Emergency, in whose upheavals four strangers--a spirited widow, a young student uprooted from his idyllic hill station, and two tailors who have fled the caste violence of their native village--will be thrust together, forced to share one cramped apartment and an uncertain future.

I will review this (here) later. I have just made an exerted effort to read this so I could pass it on to Edwardstreet this morning at our Uncon breakfast on the Gold Coast.

I went through Mt TBR and have chosen this as my next read as it is on the Wishlist of a new bookcrosser who I have tagged twice. I am gathering the books together to post in January when I am visiting Australia where she lives

Thank you Edwardstreet for this Wishlist tag. I look forward to reading it. Gratefully received alongside 2 other tags.
It’s fun to see that the book has passed through a number of now-familiar bookcrosser’s hands.
