Description

This immensely subtle novel both estranges and gently strokes the surface of English and Indian life.

The delight of Amit Chaudhuri's Afternoon Raag comes from his ability to render mental landscapes in a tight allusive prose. His idea of the novel as a collection of poetic musings is also displayed in his sensitivity to minute detail and his ability to transform the quotidian and the seemingly insignificant into the matter of intense reflection.

COMMENT:

Enchanting, studded with moments of beauty more arresting than anything to be found in a hundred busier and more excitable narratives... Chaudhuri has proved that he can write better than just about anyone of his generation. - London Review of Books

Te delight of Amit Chaudhuri's Afternoon Raag comes from his ability to render mental landscapes in a tight allusive prose . . Chaudhuri is gifted with eloquence on small things .. Delicate water colorings. - Observer

As elegant and economical as he best poetry.. Chaudhuri's book is an astonishing accomplishment. . Which seems to float tantalizingly above the usual demands of fiction - Sunday Times

Chaudhury uses words with soaring Tlan. The images and metaphor leap off the pages like flying fish skimming the surface and attracting attention to both themselves and the water.. He delights with a tidal wave of insights, and with the delicate curlicues of his classically crafted prose. - India Today
