When a Nepalese insurgency threatens Sai’s blossoming romance with her handsome tutor they are forced to consider their colliding interests. The judge must revisit his past, his own journey and his role in this grasping world of conflicting desires every moment holding out the possibility for hope or betrayal. Man Booker Prize 2006.

Faber and Faber

They have 5 children ranging in age from 17 to 6. Although Jake and Beth are the main characters, it is through the effect on these children that we see the cost of life without hope.
