Aleph Books has published Amitava Kumar's novel, The Lovers, in India and some fantastic reviews have come in. The book will be released by Faber in the UK and Knopf in the US next year under a different title, Immigrant, Montana.
The book is "a story of modern love set in the murky terrain of desire and cultural mishaps, braiding together the pleasures of fiction and non-fiction" says Scroll.in, "His writing is a sharp blend of fiction, non-fiction, myth-making and history, telling a story that perhaps only Kumar can. [...] the different sections open up slowly, yet enticingly, like a curtain being drawn back to reveal a mirror gradually, but only for us to see that the mirror was stained all along."
