Freedom Song : Three Novels - used book

ID: 2374599

What most immediately galvanizes the reader ofFreedom Songis the elegance and idiosyncrasy of Amit Chaudhuri's writing. In the words of Salman Rushdie: "[His] languorous, elliptical, beautiful prose is impressively impossible to place in any category at all." And it is this quality of ineffability that gives Chaudhuri's words the power they have to reveal--slowly, quietly, with a richness of sensual detail and subtle humor--the significance of the ordinary moments of life. A boy spends a summer and a winter with his parents in a Bombay high-rise, and spends other summers in Calcutta immersed in the more traditional life of his uncle's extended family . . . A young man at Oxford, whose memories of home in Bombay bring both comfort and melancholy, faces a choice between "clinging to my Indianness, or letting it go, between being nostalgic or looking toward the future". . . The members of a Calcutta family are occupied with the task of finding the right woman for the twenty-eight-year-old son who would rather occupy himself with politics . . . In these three short novels--Freedom Song, Afternoon Raag,andA Strange and Sublime Address("The best portrait of India today I've read," wrote Margaret Drabble)--Chaudhuri illuminates the surprisingly nuanced intimate worlds of middle-class Indian men, women, and children. The novels brim with the author's stunning evocations of place and time, and his radiant descriptions and subtle explorations of the expected and surprising events of da contemporary,fiction,literary,literature and fiction Literature & Fiction, Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group

In three short novels -- Freedom Song, Afternoon Raag, and A Strange and Sublime Address ("The best portrait of India today I've read, Margaret Drabble says) -- Chaudhuri reveals the intimate worlds of Indian men, women, and children of the middle class, living in Calcutta and Bombay and, temporarily, in England. We follow them through the expected and surprising events of their daily lives. We witness the effects of family connectedness and separation. We see what reminds them "how mysterious the world (is) at every moment". Chaudhuri's luxurious descriptions of the richly lived inner life, and his stunning evocations of place and time, create mesmerizing, unexpected narratives of what might otherwise seem merely quotidian.
