From the publisher

Keeping in Touch is an unsettling slow burn of a novel, as quiet and funny as it is a searing and precise portrait of the human condition. Anjali’s writing is calm and restrained but the novel builds such intensity through her powerful observation. A real beauty.’ EVIE WYLD, AUTHOR OF ALL THE BIRDS, SINGING

From award-winning writer Anjali Joseph, a compelling new novel about a dysfunctional love affair.

Meet Ved, a British investor heading back to his Indian roots with a business proposition: a lightbulb called the everlasting Lucifer.

Meet Keteki, an art curator with a nomadic lifestyle, on her way home to Assam.

In Heathrow airport, on the way to Mumbai, their paths cross, sparking a love affair that soon turns into an intricate power game — and a complicated journey towards intimacy.

‘The hesitation and wary texting, the one step forward and two steps back — this is a modern love story that also becomes a love story about Assam. I read this book in a single sitting.’ JEET THAYIL, AUTHOR OF NARCOPOLIS

‘A relationship novel perfect for today’s uncertain world — resolutely grown-up, delicately unpredictable, and all the more satisfying for it.’ JONATHAN GIBBS, AUTHOR OF RANDALL
