Description: In a house on a narrow Calcutta street, lit by the half light of a yellow street lamp, lies a baby, one day old, wrapped in a hospital towel. In the next room sits a man, all alone, writing.

Who is this man, and why does he write with such urgency? Where has the baby come from, where will it go? Over the course of this novel, the man's determination to tell the unflinching truth about these questions is communicated in spare, haunting stories. Flitting from past to present and back again, he recounts tales of the shared childhood of a boy and his sister, and gradually divulges a layered and transfixing confession of the darkest of family secrets. The glinting images of caged white pigeons, dappled light cast by a cane lampshade, and city trams splashing through rain-filled potholes reflect and play off one another in this novel of prismatic beauty.

In a work that speaks to the redemptive power of story-telling and imagination over grim reality, Raj Khamal Jha has created an astonishing debut. From "The First Story" to the last "Eight Words, " this is a remarkably powerful, meticulously constructed novel that will leave its readers stunned.
