  • Description
    A journalist sits in a café waiting for his subject—an artist called Drishya about whom he wants to write a novel. But Drishya doesn’t come. For that morning he has been visited by Maoists at his home and abducted by them… So begins Palpasa Café, the extraordinary novel by Nepali journalist Narayan Wagle, which has become a sensation in the country. Starting with the murders of the royal family, it tells the troubled story of contemporary Nepal through the eyes of a romantic artist who falls in love, wanders the war-struck countryside and dreams of creating a café named after his beloved which serves the best coffee in the country. Playful, moving and melancholic, fusing the boundaries between fiction and non fiction, Palpasa Café presents a rare picture of Nepal at war. It is one of the most important novels to come out of the country.

    Truly Entertaining!!!

    The book is really interesting in many levels and makes for an excellent read especially for someone who wants to have an idea of lives in a country undergoing a civil war. Though the plot is centered around the Maoist insurgency in Nepal, the author never loses focus of the plot and does not turn it into a diatribe against the system. The character of the protagonist is well etched and the different circumstances he faces is well crafted. Read it for an enjoyable experience.
