Set in the context of the zeitgeist and idealism of the late sixties, Harp is about love, longing and coming of age. The three main protagonists - a young man travelling in a Europe-less-travelled including the Iron Curtain, a young woman who has a calling to music, and another young woman who has loved and lost once - provide the frame of this narrative about journeys we make across countries, even as we embark on a private quest within to know ourselves better, and to seek what it is we really want from life.Moving through India, Europe and USA, Harp follows the lives of these three young people even as they engage with the cultural, sexual, student revolutions, and the music of the sixties.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review of harp Harp is the love story of Ashok, the young son of a conservative business family who belongs to Delhi and a Polish girl Lauren who has a penchant for music. Set in the late sixties, the book is a narrative about Ashok as he travels to Europe and falls in love with Lauren. This being his first time alone in a foreign land shows his excitement and anxiousness as he explores a world lesser known to him. The author describes his travels as he visits cities in France, Norway, Finland, Sweden and Poland with such great detail that you immediately feel transported to that world. The story is gripping and one does not want to put the book down before knowing what happens to Ashok and Lauren. The many subplots in the story are beautifully executed and closed. Set in communist Poland of the sixties makes for the most important part of this novel. It is better to have loved and lost then not to have loved at all is what Harp is all about. A book which is well written, easy to read and with a lovely end.
