From the publisher

In his early teens, Mehran moves from Karachi, the rainless place of his childhood to London, the rainy city his father has always loved. At the age of twenty-three, he leaves his job in a bank to return to university, where he meets the charismatic Riccarda - nearly ten years older than him, vivacious and enigmatic. Their relationship, which shades from friendship into love, will last a lifetime. In his thirties, when life doesn't quite go according to plan, Mehran becomes involved with Marvi, passionate, displaced and damaged, and has to choose between the demands of a relationship and the solitude that his burgeoning poetic imagination demands.
