Book Description

About the Book
Sethu weaves his novel with Priyamvada, an HR professional, and a single parent, at the centre of the narrative. A strong undercurrent of this Sahitya Akademi award-winning novel is the way woman asserts her independence. Deft strokes suggest how a professional woman scores. While it is a personal journey for this single parent, there are the dilemmas she faces; doing a tightrope walk between the labour force and the managements, trying to fill the vacuum in her daughter's life and consciously attempting to steady her own emotional moorings. Adroitly stringing together three stories from diverse milieu, Sethu sheds light on the psyche of the modern young woman.

A man of many parts is how Sethu can be described in the fewest number of words. A student of physics, a banker by profession, a master story-teller, and at present Chairman of the National Book Trust, Sahitya Akademi award-winner Sethu's impeccable craft is the envy of many.

About the Author
An 'ex-banker' K T Rajagopalan writes in English and Malayalam. Over the years, he has translated several of Sethu's short stories. This is his maiden foray into a novel by Sethu.
