No Country, Paperback

Description

In November 1989, an Indian couple are discovered murdered in a small town in upstate New York.

They lie together as though just disengaged from a long embrace.

Yet their murder has been two centuries in the making.

County Sligo, Ireland, 1843. Seventeen-year-old Brendan McCarthaigh and his best friend Padraig have everything ahead of them.

Quiet Brendan is in love with books and headstrong, spirited Padraig is madly in love with black-haired Brigid.

But when the sanctimonious Father Conlon discovers Padraig and Brigid's clandestine affair, he sets in motion a chain of unforeseeable, irrevocable events that will propel one to North America and the other to Bengal.

Weaving together private histories and real events, and taking us on a journey across the globe - Kalyan Ray has crafted a sweeping, epic, multigenerational saga spanning two centuries.

A rich, compelling tale of home and exile, identity and hybridity, it is also a story of oppression, friendship and compassion, and the few intimate degrees of separation that lie between love and murder.
