Description

Varmull, nestled amidst the mighty Pir Mountains and the Jhelum

River, with its small-town familiarity exchanged in quiet lanes, has

always been home. Until violence overwhelms the streets, and there

is no option but to flee. For six punishing summers in a sweltering

Delhi barsati, Rahul, Doora and their young son try to push back

their memories and their longing for Kashmir. Around them, the city

remains rude and alien. Their landlord calls Rahul a Muslim-Brahmin

because he eats meat; his Pandit relatives want him to join a Hindu

extremist group. It isn’t long then before Rahul flees again, this time

to England, where he hopes he will not have to make these choices:

Pandit or Kashmiri? Professor or husband? Rational intellectual or

wounded exile? Expat or refugee?

As he struggles to survive his foreignness, stumbling from one

accidental relationship to another, a series of bombings in London

blasts Kashmir right back into his life. And he knows he must attempt

the journey back home.

A devastating exploration of what it means to lose one’s home, A Bit

of Everything lays bare the many ways in which the violence of a land

tears apart the everyday lives of its people.
