Descripción

Fine first printing in fine dustwrapper. Signed and dated by the author to the title page, without inscription: 'Neel Mukherjee 11.X.2014'. The author's second highly regarded novel was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2014. This copy was signed by the author at The Cheltenham Literature Festival a few days before the Man Booker ceremony. A heavy book which may well attract a postal surcharge for overseas mailing. As an enthusiastic collector myself I make every effort to provide a high level of service. N° de ref. de la librería 003859

Sinopsis:

An epic saga telling the story of a Bengali family in Calcutta -- exploring a family that is decaying as the society around it fractures, and one young man who tries to reimagine his place in the world.
     ‘'Ma, I feel exhausted with consuming, with taking and grabbing and using. I am so bloated that I feel I cannot breathe any more. I am leaving to find some air, some place where I shall be able to purge myself, push back against the life given me and make my own. I feel I live in a borrowed house. It’s time to find my own... -- Forgive me...’.'
     It is 1967, Calcutta. Unnoticed by his family, Supratik has become dangerously involved in student unrest, agitation, extremist political activism. Compelled by an idealistic desire to change his life and the world around him, all he leaves behind is this note.
   The ageing patriarch and matriarch of his family, the Ghoshes, preside over their large household, unaware that beneath the barely ruffled surface of their lives the sands are shifting. More than poisonous rivalries among sisters-in-law, destructive secrets, and the implosion of the family business, this is a family unravelling as the society around it fractures. For this is a moment of turbulence, of inevitable and unstoppable change: the chasm between the generations, and between those who have and those who have not, has never been wider. Ambitious, rich, humane and striking, The Lives of Others unfolds a family history, and anatomises a social class in all its contradictions. It asks: can we escape what is in our blood? How do we imagine our place amongst others in the world? Can that be reimagined? And at what cost?
