Product Description

Shiv K. Kumar has donned many hats and lived many lives: poet, novelist, short-story writer, playwright, translator, academic and critic. He was born in Lahore, where he received his school and college education. He obtained his doctorate in English Literature from the University of Cambridge. Prof. Kumar has published thirteen volumes of poetry, five novels, two collections of short stories and a play. His poems have appeared in several renowned newspapers and journals like the New York Times, Poetry Review (London), Western Humanities Review, among others-and been broadcast on the BBC. In 1978, he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature (London). He received the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1987 for his collection of poems Trapfalls in the Sky. In 2001, he was awarded the Padma Bhushan for his contribution to literature.

Long years ago, as India made its tryst with destiny and the soul of a nation long suppressed was torn asunder, a story of love and compassion ensued . . .

Sahitya Akademi awardee Shiv K. Kumar brings us a Partition novel that will delight readers with its fast-paced and humorous storytelling. Join Gautam Mehta as he converts to Christianity to divorce his wife, falls in love with a kidnapped Muslim beauty, and revels in adventures full of midnight swigs, enamelled snuffboxes, and quiet bouts of love-making. Join our stout-hearted, quick-witted protagonist as he hobnobs with the remaining Raj-era relics and, despite being hung-over, defeats the ruddy kidnappers of his romantic, timid little thing‰ÛÓhis adversaries have not a whiff of a chance!

Shiv K. Kumar‰۪s memorable novel takes you on a journey to the twilight of the Raj, to the pains of Partition, and to a love story that will heal the scars left in the wake of history.
