This is a charming story of love and friendship, with a touch of tragedy. Civil servant-turned-school teacher Arunava Varman is secretive and reticent. But he turns into an inspired teller of tales after a couple of drinks, especially in the company of his friend, Tapan. Arunava's bizarre stories - involving friends, family and colleagues - add a dash of excitement and intrigue to Tapan's mundane life of a bureaucrat. But over the years, as Tapan gets to know Arunava better, he starts discovering disturbing holes in these tales. Elegant, wistful and full of surprises, this exquisitely crafted first novel combines the suspense of a thriller with the tender charm of a love story.
