Description

A man and a woman meet in a midnight road accident and fall in love. A reporter arrives in a small town to uncover the story of a child's rape and murder. And a young girls, shaken by suicides in her neighbourhood, begins to fear for her parents' lives.

These three tales come together in the looking-glass world of Raj Kamal Jha's novel, where nothing is quite what it seems. And yet, at the same time, everything is strangely familiar.

PRAISE FOR THE AUTHOR AND BLUE BEDSPREAD

A ghostly, elliptical piece of prose of quite magical quality
-Evening Standard

Almost a coming of age of the Indian novel
-John Fowles

Jha combines the energy of a Salman Rushdie with the precise lyricism of an Amit Chaudhuri…It is a powerful novel, and I found myself haunted by it.
-New York Times Book Review

Enchanting…Jha is not afraid to risk emotion, but he never falls into the trap of sentimentality.
-Daily Telegraph

A powerful, haunting and sometimes shocking novel that deserves to be read at one sitting and then reread.
-Irish Times
