Product description

Review

'A terrific page-turner... An utter treat... Chowringhee might, to many eyes, supply more unashamed reader-transporting enjoyment than any other fiction of the year.' Boyd Tonkin, Independent 'I lost myself in it for days... A wonderful experience - both gripping and moving.' Vikram Seth 'Chowringhee is one of those novels you don't want to end. It teems with life, creating an entirely absorbing world.' Vikas Swarup, author of Slumdog Millionaire 'A panoramic and utterly captivating picture of a workplace, a city and an era - This old-fashioned feast of storytelling crawls with character, heaves with drama and bursts with flavour - A sumptuous buffet of a book.' Boyd Tonkin, Independent 'Chowringhee has that essential quality of a good novel: the capacity to escape, and help the reader escape, time. You want to turn the pages, but you do not want the pages to end. The words are fresh, and the world of the novel is completely alive, despite being written over 40 years ago... A lovely, charming book brimming with life and full of the unexpectedness of a closely observed world.' Book of the Week, Guardian --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
