In Jhumpa Lahiri’s sweeping drama, the deep bond between two brothers can do nothing to forestall the tragedy that will upend their lives.

Subhash and Udayan were inseparable in childhood. They wandered the suburban streets of Calcutta before dusk and played for hours in the hyacinth-strewn ponds. But the years pass and riots sweep across India. Udayan - charismatic and impulsive - finds himself drawn to a rebellion waged to eradicate inequity and poverty. He will give everything, risk all, for what he believes, and in doing so will transform the futures of those dearest to him.
