genre? i loved this one!
title: an atlas of impossible longing
author: anuradha roy
publisher: picador usa
genre: historical fiction
no. of pages: 336
thanks to my professor for lending me this book. “a veritable atlas. what rivers of desire, what mountains of ambition. want, want, hope, hope, this is what your palm say, your palm is nothing but an atlas of impossible longings.” an atlas of impossible longings is a story of loss, love, hope, longings and desires. this tapestry of human natures is so vivid and full of imagery that it takes one to the places and the people as the author describes them. the story is undoubtedly sad at times, but i personally applaud the author’s ability to write it without making the reader really depressed. there is a thread of old-world, pre-independence era nostalgia threading throughout the entire narrative.
