New York in the 1990s is rich, unmolested, full of hubris and joy. Zara Hussain--young, successful Wall Street trader--lives in the East Village with her twin Kabir, a free spirit and musician, and their older sister Salma, a scientist who is looking for an acceptable husband. Their best friend Sam helps them chase their extraordinary dreams when he's not indulging his own passion for tigers.
The story begins with a crisis in Immigration at JFK Airport, which results in Zara vowing to stay in the US and Kabir deciding to return to India. As the year draws to a close, the siblings' lives have turned upside down. Zara is involved in a snowballing financial scandal on Wall Street; Kabir is faced with the unfamiliar joys of responsibility; and Salma has found a possible and dangerous love. Along the way we meet a motley bunch-- Benny, a mentally ill man desperately searching for beauty; Mildred, one of Kabir's many lovers; Rick, the Hussains' neighbour who wants to sail the seven seas; and the moon as it makes sudden appearances.
In elegant prose and vivid imagery, Sohaila Abdulali brings to life the rich, vibrant landscape of New York before 9/11.
