From the publisher

A perfect miniature of a novel about arrivals and departures, new worlds and old homes. 

Winner of the Encore Award and the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Fiction

A beguiling, short and yet sweeping prose-poem, Afternoon Raag is the account of a young Bengali man studying at Oxford University and caught in complicated love triangle. His loneliness and melancholy sharpen his memories of home, which come back to haunt him in vivid, sensory detail.

Intensely moving, superbly written, Afternoon Raag is a testimony to the clash of the old and the new; arrivals and departures.

With an introduction by James Wood
