    Description
    Set in Shimla, The Red Tin Roof evokes with rare delicacy and precision the interplay of seasons, nature and people, while it broodingly tells the story of a young girl growing into adolescence in the company mostly of older women, but also of a younger brother who trails her. In this exploration of an inner world, Nirmal Verma does not so much tell a story as reminisce. Memory is the seed of his story.
    About the AuthorNirmal Verma (1929-2005) developed a characteristic style which used rich, realistic description as a mirror of the inner life. He wrote five novels, eight collections of short stories and nine volumes of essays and travelogues. Following his work at the Oriental Institute in Prague in the 1960s, he undertook direct translations of contemporary Czech writers such as Milan Kundera, Bohumil Hrabal and Vaclav Havel into Hindi, much before their work became popular internationally. A much loved and well decorated writer, his honours include Indias highest literary award, the Jnanpith (2000) Indias third-highest civilian award, the Padma Bhushan (2003) and the Sahitya Akademi award for lifetime achievement (1985).

    Did NOT disappoint!

    I read about the book in a newspaper article mentioning names of top books of 2013 that were translated from Hindi...Since 'Cobalt Blue' was a great book, I thought of purchasing the others as well...

    The Red Tin Roof did not disappoint as well...one can relate to it at some point or the other!

    Great book bordering on existentialism

    Typically Verma- desolate, cut off, dreamy characters living in a world within. Beautifully written from the perspective of a young girl edging into maturity.

    Highly recommend this book- as a story it's stylish, engaging and an easy read. Yet when you finish the book you realize the deeper questions it evokes. Read it!
