Country of Goodbyes
Country of Goodbyes
Description

About the Book

Four women. One man, Five stories that interweave, overlap, cross over and come together as the characters speak their lives to the reader – and to each other. Five characters in search of themselves in different contexts, from different backgrounds, trying to connect across a chasm of loneliness and disappointment.

Mridula Garg’s original Hindi novel, Kathgulab, available in English for the first time, seethes with disquiet. No permanent solutions, no abiding relationship, just the seeking self. Hailed as a work of extraordinary power and vigour when it was published, Country of Goodbyes is unrelenting in its probing, astringent in its delineation of women trying to break free. Unusual and gripping.

About the Author

Mridula Garg has published 16 books, including novels, story collections, plays and essays. She has won many awards, including the Hammett-Hellman award given by Human Right Watch for courageous writing, in 2001.

I am very thankful to you for keeping such rare and quality books, DVDs, and CDs of classical music and even Dhrupad which is almost unbelievable. I hope you continue to be this good in your helpfulness. I have found books about rare cultural heritage such as Kodava samaj, Dhrupad and other DVDs and CDs in addition to the beautiful sarees I have from your business, actually business is not the right word, but for lack of a word I am using this.

I have purchased many books from your company. Your packaging is excellent, service is great and attention is prompt. Please maintain this quality for this order also!

My order arrived today with plenty of time to spare. Everything is gorgeous, packing excellent.
Vana, Australia
I was pleased to chance upon your site last year though the name threw me at first! I have ordered several books on Indian theatre and performance, which I haven't found elsewhere (including Amazon) or were unbelievably exorbitantly priced first editions etc. I appreciate how well you pack the books in your distinctive protective packaging for international and domestic mailing (for I order books for India delivery as well) and the speed with which my order is delivered, well within the indicated time. Good work!
Chitra, United Kingdom

Ekaterina, Canada.
I love your company and have been buying a variety of wonderful items from you for many years! Keep up the good work!
