    Description
    Shortlisted for the JCB Prize for Literature 2018. Winner of the Tata Literature Live! First Book Award (Fiction) 2018. 'Intense, lyrical, and powerful ... This is a remarkable debut.' - Jeet Thayil An astounding exploration of intense longings, Shubhangi Swarup's novel begins in the depths of the Andaman Sea, and follows geological and emotional faultlines through the Irrawaddy delta and the tourist-trap of Thamel, to end amidst the highest glaciers and passes of the Karakorams. The story sweeps through worlds and times that are inhabited by: a scientist who studies trees and a clairvoyant who talks to them; Lord Goodenough who travels around the furthest reaches of the Raj, giving names to nameless places; a geologist working towards ending futile wars over a glacier; octogenarian lovers; a superstitious dictator and a mother struggling to get her revolutionary son released; a yeti who seeks human companionship; a turtle who turns first into a boat and then a woman; and the ghost of an evaporated ocean as restless as the continents. Binding them all together is a vision of life as vast as the universe itself. Richly imaginative and irresistible in its storytelling, Latitudes of Longing announces the arrival of an incredible new literary talent.

    Nice product

    The book is in good condition. First I thought the seller Amazing Buy is not good in quality of the book because of the low rates. But I was wrong, they won my heart by sending an original good paper quality book. Thank you Flipkart and Amazing Buy.

    Terrific purchase

    Review just for the quality of the book and not the content of it. Very good quality book, pages or the sides of aren't stained or smudged. Book came in very good condition. Although the pages are a bit yellow but I think it's okay.....a must buy book!! I've read this online and bought physical copy of it as well. GREAT EXPERIENCE.
