Product Description

Nandita is a comic-book artist and a musician. She loves to daydream, eat gummy bears, play music and draw. She likes to have conversations with animals and children (in that order) more than adults. She has had many great adventures in life, which she doesn't like to disclose because some things should just remain that way.

'What I didn't know was that just as I was searching for my friend, my friend was also searching for me. And that search had started a long time ago.'

This is the story of a friendship between a young girl and her piano.

The piano was made many decades before the girl was born. And it travelled from Leipzig, Germany, through war-torn France and England-to come to Calcutta during the independence struggle. Finally the girl and the piano found one another, until circumstances separated them . . .

This is a story of love and loss, of unexpected bonds and loneliness, and above all, it is a celebration of the power of music.

Basu weaves in the wartime machinations and the revolutionary spirit of the Indian freedom struggle into The Piano.It is not just a gorgeous graphic novel, it is a historical fiction in graphic novel format. What's there to not love! It makes you want to revisit history outside that classroom where we used to find it boring.This graphic novel published by Duckbill is a thin volume but it has so much to say. I was drawn into the story immediately. So simple. So profound.
