From the publisher
From the author of Sojourn and Friend of My Youth, a novel that goes straight to the heart of a family, in all their hopes, desires and regrets.
A year after his divorce, Jayojit Chatterjee, an economics professor in the American Midwest, travels home to Calcutta with his young son, Bonny, to spend the summer holidays with his parents. Jayojit is no more accustomed to spending time alone with Bonny – who lives with his mother in California – than he is with the Admiral and his wife, whose daily rhythms have become so synchronized as to become completely foreign to their son.
Together, the unlikely foursome struggles to pass the protracted hours of summer, each in his or her own way mourning Jayojit’s failed marriage. Written with depth and tenderness, A New World goes right to the heart of a family, making vividly alive their hopes, desires and regrets.
