In a snowy valley, a father writes to his five-year-old daughter about the number of people that attended her funeral. Arundhati Roy's new novel gives us a glorious cast of unforgettable characters, caught up in the tide of history, each in search of a place of safety. It is at once a love story and a provocation, an emotional embrace and a decisive remonstration. It is told with a whisper, with a shout, with tears and with a laugh. Its heroes, both present and departed, human as well as animal, have been broken by the world we live in and then mended by love.
