The Circle of Reason, Paperback / softback Book

The Circle of Reason Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

A saga of flight and pursuit, this novel chronicles the adventures of Alu, a young weaver who is wrongly suspected of being a terrorist.

Chased from Bengal to Bombay and on through the Persian Gulf to North Africa by a bird-watching police inspector, Alu encounters along the way a cast of characters as various and as colourful as the epithets with which the author adorns them.

The reader is drawn into their lives by incidents tender and outrageous and all compellingly told.

Ghosh is as natural a weaver of words as Alu is of cloth, deftly interlacing humour and wisdom to produce a narrative tapestry of surpassing beauty.
