From the Publisher
It is Bombay in 1971, the year India went to war over what was to
become Bangladesh. A hard-working bank clerk, Gustad Noble is a
devoted family man who gradually sees his modest life unravelling.
His young daughter falls ill; his promising son defies his father's
ambitions for him. He is the one reasonable voice amidst the
ongoing dramas of his neighbours. One day, he receives a letter
from an old friend, asking him to help in what at first seems like
an heroic mission. But he soon finds himself unwittingly drawn into
a dangerous network of deception. Compassionate, and rich in
details of character and place, this unforgettable novel charts the
journey of a moral heart in a turbulent world of change.
