Leela's middle-class youth is no more "bittersweet" than that of her white contemporaries? What if it is mostly sweet? It is a pertinent question, posed in a readable and entertaining book.
-Guardian

Synopsis

Longlisted for the Man Asian Literary Prize, this is a superb second novel from the author of the multiple-award winning 'Saraswati Park'. Paris, London, Bombay: three cities form a backdrop to a journey through Leela's twenties at the dawn of the new millennium, as she learns to negotiate the world, work, relationships and sex, and find some measure of authenticity. Sharp, funny, and melancholy, Another Country brings a cool eye to friendship, love, and the idea of belonging in its movements through old and new worlds. As with her debut, Saraswati Park, Anjali Joseph's beautiful, clear writing captures exactly both emotions and surroundings.

Irritating girl and, ultimately, an irritating book.
