In the north-eastern Himalayas, in a crumbling, isolated house at the foot of Mount Kanchenjunga there lives a cantankerous old judge who wants nothing more thanto retire in peace. But when his orphaned granddaughter Sai arrives on his doorstep and the son of his chatty cook, Biju, trying to make his way in the USA, hopscotching from one New York restaurant job to another, trying to stay a step ahead of the immigration services, this is never easy. When a Nepalese insurgency threatens Sai's new-sprung romance with her handsome Nepali tutor and causes their lives to descend into chaos, they, too, are forced to confront their colliding interests. The nation fights itself. The cook witnesses the hierarchy being overturned and discarded. The judge must revisit his past, his own role in this grasping world of conflicting desires, every moment holding out the possibility for hope or betrayal. This 2006 Hamish Hamilton Paperback is in Very Good condition.
