Description

In this beautiful, inspiring treasure of a book, Sudeep Sen reflects on rain——its passion and politics, its beauty and fury, its ability to "“douse and arouse"”. He ultimately explores the various moods that water and fluids inherently unravel.

The evocative art by an impressive array of leading contemporary Indian artists that accompany the writing act as an aesthetic counter-point, leitmotiv, and antithesis——thus creating a fine tension and balance between words and images.

Sudeep Sen'’s fiction which is at the same time balletic and precise, poetic and minimalist, stylized and wise, combines the virtual and visual—convey the intensely special magic of monsoon rains as felt in the Indian subcontinent.

Praise

"I read Monsoon [Rain] with considerable admiration and pleasure. It is a word-perfect collection and its subject matter is both the measure of the rain and the spoken line."
—Amit Chaudhuri in The Statesman 'Best Book of the Year'

"A rich, fluent, cosmopolitan voice."
—Peter Bradshaw in London Evening Standard
