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.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.
Rupesh
Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva
Marc, UK
I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.

Another three books arrived during the last weeks, all of them diligently packed. Excellent reading for the the quieter days at the end of the year. Greetings to Vipin K. and his team.
