isbn: 9780007441297 is the latest book from an author i like (my blog). Not a prolific writer but the books do something. It starts with the literary concept of the marriage plot that has disappeared from most books and points a finger at those industrial revolution types. Interesting without getting boring, and counterpointed by the religious student who sees bad in romance in passion it is book that thinking on it plays results as a counterpoint while exploring the r factor through homosexuality, and helping out in calcutta in india.
Set in 1980 it essentially follows four people. One sick with depression,the others english literature students. Its interaction between the four and the issues it raises via direct or through other characters is worth the read.
An interesting dialogue on marriage. 5/5 bananas.
