Red River: A Novel – Somnath Batabyal
2 in stock
A FAST-PACED NOVEL ABOUT THREE BOYS WHO GROW UP IN THE EARLY YEARS OF MILITANCY IN ASSAM AND TAKE DIFFERENT PATHS INTO ADULTHOOD AND LOVE.
A sprawling novel set in the north-east of India, this is a lyrical exploration of male friendships and love—a man’s love for a woman and a more militant love for community and nation. The action moves from Guwahati to Dhaka, Bhutan and London, surging and quietening as we encounter characters and situations so close to the bone that it’s hard to step away till the last word has been read.
