The Lives Of Others – Neel Mukherjee

the lives of others 140*224_RHI.inddREAD FOR BOOKERTHON

Set in 1966 Calcutta, the Ghosh family represents the nation as it battles an imploding business and poisonous family battles.

✎ “The harrowing opening pages provide the perfect juxtaposition to the petty woes of the Ghosh family whom we are soon introduced to. It is this contrast reiterated throughout which drew me into the story. There is a huge cast of characters, all of whom are well-developed, which makes this seem more like a true-to-life tale. A big read, but worth the perseverance.” – Rachel
