We meet Anjum, who used to be Aftab, who runs a guest-house in an Old Delhi graveyard and gathers around her the lost, the broken and the cast out. We meet Tilo, an architect, who although she is loved by three men, lives in a ‘country of her own skin’ . When Tilo claims an abandoned baby as her own, her destiny and that of Anjum become entangled as a tale that sweeps across the years and a teeming continent takes flight…’A sprawling kaleidoscopic fable’ Guardian, Books of the Year’Roy’s second novel proves as remarkable as her first’ Financial Times’A great tempest of a novel… which will leave you awed by the heat of its anger and the depth of its compassion’ Washington Post
