Product Description

Shortlisted for The Econimic Crossword Book Award 2011 in English Fiction category

With her debut novel, An Atlas of Impossible Longing, Anuradha Roy’s exquisite storytelling instantly won readers’ hearts around the world, and the novel was named one of the best books of the year by the Washington Post, Huffington Post and the Seattle Times. Now, Roy has returned with an evocative and deeply moving tale about a young woman making a new life for herself in a tiny village in the foothills of the Himalayas. Desperate to leave a private tragedy behind, the newly widowed Maya abandons herself to the peaceful rhythms of the village, where people coexist peacefully with nature. But all is not as it seems, and she soon learns that no refuge is remote enough to keep out the modern world. When power-hungry politicians begin to threaten the very existence of her beloved mountain community, Maya finds herself caught between the life she left behind and the new home she is determined to protect.Elegiac, witty, and profound by turns, and with a tender love story at its core, The Folded Earth brims with the same genius and love of language that made An Atlas of Impossible Longing an international success and confirms Anuradha Roy as a major literary talent.
