A Strange and Sublime Address, Paperback Book


A Strange and Sublime Address, Amit Chaudhuri's first book, features a Bengali boy who spends his school holidays at his uncle's home in Calcutta.

Heatwaves, thunderstorms, mealtimes, prayer-sessions, shopping expeditions and family visits create a shifting background to the shaping of people's lives.

Delicate, nuanced, full of exquisite detail, A Strange and Sublime Address is a small masterpiece.

The book also includes nine short stories about the city.
