The Folded Earth
Publisher: MacLehose Press, 2011
Pages: 257 pages
A young woman makes a new life for herself in a tiny town in the foothills of the Himalayas. Struggling to leave a private tragedy behind, the newly widowed Maya abandons herself to the town’s peaceful rhythms, befriending a lovesick peasant girl, Charu, and her eccentric landlord, Diwan Shaib, who holds valuable secrets from India’s past.
Elegiac and profound by turns, and with a tender romance at its core, The Folded Earth brims with the genius and love of language that made An Atlas of Impossible Longing an international success, and confirms Anuradha Roy as a major new literary talent.
