The Last Song of Dusk (book)


This stunning first novel is one that ought to find its way on to your reading list as soon as possible... tender and bittersweet this magical story is set in India and is told in a refreshingly new voice, with dazzling wit and an eye for detail that brings out the colour not only of the landscape but of the four bewitching characters that shine throughout the story. As their fates unravel, they learn to navigate the ever-changing landscape of love, and in doing so encounter a host of eccentrics including Mr Bunkusdaas, the father of Bollywood cinema and Libya Dass - rarely seen out of her porcelain bathtub.
