Product Details


Advance praise for The Blue Bedspread

"Something rather remarkable, almost a coming-of-age of the Indian novel."
–John Fowles

"From the first pages I was drawn in by the mysterious staccato of Jha’s prose. This is a major talent."
–Mary Karr, author of The Liars’ Club

"If you want to get ahead of the literary game this year, practice   getting your jaws around the following syllables: Raj Kamal Jha. He writes like an Indian Raymond Carver."
The Independent on Sunday (London)

"Jha is a remarkable writer, both in excess and restraint."
London Sunday Times

"This poetic first novel . . . is an incantatory, audacious book,     notable for moments of great poignancy."      
The Guardian (London)

"A ghostly, elliptical piece of prose of quite magical quality, which tells the story of one man’s reconciliation with his past. Spare and yet richly patterned . . . undeniably powerful."
London Evening Standard

"A shocking novel . . . with a brilliant finale."
The Times Literary Supplement (London)
