A superb second novel from the author of the multiple-award winning Saraswati Park. "They'd discussed it earlier, in the days of their friendship: the need to reach a certain phase in one's life, to become a householder, to enter the world and leave behind the selfish days of youth." Paris, London, Bombay: three cities form a backdrop to a journey through Leela's twenties at the dawn of the new millennium, as she learns to negotiate the world, work, relationships and sex, and find some measure of authenticity. Sharp, funny, and melancholy, Another Country brings a cool eye to friendship, love, and the idea of belonging in its movements through old and new worlds. As with her debut, Saraswati Park (2010), which won the Desmond Elliott Prize, the Betty Trask Prize and India's Vodafone Crossword Prize, Anjali Joseph's beautiful, clear writing captures exactly both emotions and surroundings.
Anjali Joseph was born in Bombay in 1978. She read English at Trinity College, Cambridge, and has taught English at the Sorbonne, written for the Times of India in Bombay and been a Commissioning Editor for ELLE (India). Her first novel, Saraswati Park, won the Desmond Elliott Prize, the Betty Trask Prize, and the Vodafone Crossword Award for best novel in India, and was shortlisted for the Ondaatje Prize and a Commonwealth Prize. Another Country is her second novel.
