LIVES LESS OR­DI­NARY

India Today - - LEISURE -

ANU­RADHA ROY IS BACK IN 2018 with an epic lit­er­ary novel that spans In­dian his­tory from the 1930s to the 1990s. A vet­eran of the Man Booker longlist—for Sleep­ing on Jupiter (2015)—Roy’s next book, All The Lives We Never Lived (Ha­chette, April 2018), traces the fraught life of Gay­a­tri, as pieced to­gether by her son, Myshkin. Con­trast­ing the rise of the Nazis in Europe with the free­dom strug­gle in In­dia and the ri­val ideas of Gandhi and Tagore, it prom­ises to res­onate deeply with In­dia’s con­tem­po­rary political con­cerns.
