About the Book

In Go Back to Paris, the eminent Tamil writer, Jayakanthan captures with sensitivity the conflict between tradition and modernity in two realms- art and personal life.

Musician Sarangan returns to India with an idealistic fervour to modernise Carnatic music. He encounters a hard rock in Seshiah, his patriarch father, a veena virtuoso for whom music is divine.

Lalitha, a creative writer, is torn between her passionate love for Sarangan and her devout attachment to her noble husband. It is no conflict between dharma and adharma, but a conflict between one dharma and another. An uneasy equilibrium results.
