Being a devotee of the author's other works, I was prepared for the lyricism and history.
How cleverly the plot wove around characters in time and space. The listener could literally see the unreliable narrators glisten for an instant and then notice that their stories in fact clashed.
Historical truth is such a flawed idea. This novel demonstrates how the individuals make their own, egotistical marks..and mistakes.
Perhaps the author is right. The taste for Nostalgic Exotic Tales in Ex Imperial Territories has sustained a great many "successful" novelists rather for their exoticism than their skill.
This monsoon tale is not one of them.
