Description

OBSERVER BOOKS OF THE YEAR 2012 LONGLISTED FOR THE DSC PRIZE FOR SOUTH ASIAN LITERATURE Amal is driving his wife Claud from London to her parents' country house.

In the wake of Claud's miscarriage, it is a journey that will push their relationship - once almost perfect - towards possible collapse. In this, his latest novel, Govinden casts a critical eye on a society in which, in spite of never-ending advances in social media communications, the young still find it difficult to communicate. A devastatingly passionate and real portrait of a marriage, `Black Bread White Beer' keenly captures the abandon, selfishness, hazards and pleasures that come with giving your life to another.
