"‘A love torn apart by violence. A nation at odds with itself. Vikram Kapur's skillful narrative captures the human cost of the 1984 massacre of the Sikhs. His words speak to us because they do not preach. For the well-delineated characters in this story, 1984 is not just the past; it continues to shape the present.’ —Hartosh Singh Bal
‘Vikram Kapur's novel, well-thought-out and carefully structured, is at the same time a family saga and the sensitive portrayal of one of the most tragic episodes in recent Indian history […] He demonstrates how the politics of hatred can tear people and communities apart, [bringing] this story from the 1980s to our own traumatic times.’ —K. Satchidanandan "
