Afternoon Raag

Afternoon Raag


Described as a 'felicitous prose poem', Afternoon Raag is the account of a young Bengali man who is studying at Oxford University and caught in a complicated love triangle. His loneliness and melancholy sharpen his memories of home, which come back to haunt him in vivid, sensory detail. Intensely moving, superbly written, Afternoon Raag is a perfect miniature of a novel about arrivals and departures, new worlds and old homes.
