Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard

Author:

Availability: Out Of Stock

The delightful story of Sampath Chawla, bored post-office clerk and dreamer, who takes to the branches of a secluded guava tree in search of the contemplative life - only to find something rather different... 'Hullabaloo is delicious: with kindness and humour Desai describes a magical world full of eccentric characters that, at the end of the book, one is sad to leave.' Daily Telegraph 'Charming and deliciously funny. It is very much a novel rooted in Indian culture, but the satirical strands - about entrepreneurialism and the credulous creation of gurus - are, of course, more widely , relevant... A significant contribution to Indian fiction in English.' Observer 'There is so much to admire in this charming book, dainty in its construction but ballasted by real emotion, that to call Desai a young writer of promise would do her a disservice. On this showing , she is already the finished article. Sunday Telegraph 'Desai is a lavish, sharp-eyed fabulist whose send-up of small town culture cuts to the heart of human perversity. New Yorker
