Through chronicling a tangled web of relationships, the novel - a part of the series of The Modern Indian Novels in Translation - translated from original Gujarati, explores the metaphysics of love and living.

pain, fear, pleasure, togetherness, anger, resignation. . . A description of the myriad emotions that define one word . . . Love. A collage of events, both past and present, is woven together with philosophical reflections on life and art. Why does the narrator choose to write his story? Is writing a form of self-flagellation, a way of arriving at the truth of a compulsion?

Tridip Suhrud teaches at the National Institute of Design, Ahmedabad. He has translated Ashish Nandy's Intimate Enemy into Gujarati, and at present is working on nineteenth century Gujarati autobiographies.
