(This novel has been long listed for Man Asian Literary Prize 2011 for Fiction)

A twenty-six-year-old Indian journalist decides to give up his job and travel to Guyana, a forgotten colonial society of raw, mesmerizing beauty. But he is not just seduced by the country: he is also captivated by the feisty yet fragile Jan, and together they embark on an adventure which will take them into a new country and change both their lives. In his dazzling and ambitious debut novel, Rahul Bhattacharya has captured the heady adventures of travel, the overheated restlessness of youth, and the paradoxes of searching for the meaning of life in the escape from home.

a book like life

A novel that feels like liquid gold. It captures life. Read it patiently and with an open mind. It is full of surprising observatoins and wisdom. Many lines are like epigrams. Also many jokes! It won the Royal Society of Lit Ondaatje Prize and Hindu Prize. Indians will understand their history.

Humanistic Interaction: in the course of travelling the protagonist meets a lot of folks, discuses about their life, idiosyncrasies, food, music ...
Love Story: the first interaction, the chase, love making and the twists.
Cricket: cricket greats from Caribbean.

The best of the author comes out in describing the good things about the normal, common, mundane actions of daily life.
