The Sly Company of People Who Care
"Bhattacharya is Naipaulian in the scrupulousness and precision with which he observes and records native life and landscape. But where Naipaul's restraint can lead to overmanaged and ponderous prose, Bhattacharya's writing bursts with as much passion as the tropical downpours he describes. His novel contains some of the finest poetic descriptions of Guyana's landscape I have ever read. The wettened stars, the floating drizzle or rain blowing in lilac gusts over rice fields, the trombone of cows from a soaked pasture – all these and more capture the essence of Guyana, which is water. . . To follow in the footsteps of the likes of Naipaul is a daunting journey, but Bhattacharya, in his first novel, has shown a talent reminiscent of the early works of that great pioneer."--Guardian"Rivers and waterfalls flow through the mesmerising narrative of this beguiling debut novel by Indian journalist and cricket writer Rahul Bhattacharya. Guyana in South America, where the novel is set, is known as "the land of many waters". Eschewing a more conventional form, the plot runs as a river might, carrying the reader along its compelling flux of stories . . . Nature is majestically described, and Bhattacharya skilfully sketches the interactions between humans and a bewilderingly beautiful landscape . . . Bhattacharya displays an artful handling of his own narrative. The tributaries of stories open up into the main swell of narrative. The greatest joy is in the novel's unexpected twists and turns, so the reader shares the narrator's wonder at the flash of toucan, the sudden glint of a river, or a floating blue butterfly. The author sheds great light into this little-known corner of the planet, as well as forcing us into a "reconsideration of the world" and of the delicate ecosystem which makes the whole thing hang together."--Independent"…it is beautifully written and brims with charm. Bhattacharya’s total immersion in the culture and the local patois has produced both a love letter to Guyana and a fascinating insight into that Caribbean country’s volatile mix of races. Definitely a book to be savoured lying in a shady hammock, with a bottle of rum and cricket on the radio."--Financial Times"Rahul Bhattacharya made a splash with his cricketing journal, Pundits From Pakistan, which is fourth in the Wisden Cricketer’s list of Best Cricket Books of all Time. He is clever, insightful and funny. With a style resonant of some of the best Asian writing by giants such as Naipaul and Rushdie, this restless first novel is packed full of oddball characters and atmospheric description … The writing is sometimes melancholic and often unusually paced - more in tune with the way a mind and a life really chop and change, rather than following a more traditional plot and narrative form. If you can keep up, this debut novel has powerful charm."--Daily Mail"The stamp of V S Naipaul is all over cricket writer Rahul Bhattacharya’s debut novel"--Metro"Evocative and perceptive, it lifts the lid on a somewhat forgotten part of the world."--Big Issue
