While working in Paris on Vedic myths of the legendary river Sarasvati which disappeared in the Indian desert, a young Indologist comes across the letters of her cousin Eliya, a dancer who died in Rajasthan. Intrigued by the hallucinatory nature of the memoirs and their surreal, dreamlike ramblings, she reconstructs the last days of Eliya's lifeóher loneliness within the walls of a sleepy palace surrounded by the desert, her thwarted passion in a dead-end relationship with a prince and her gradual descent into insanity. Offering a fascinating counterpoint to Eliya's narrative is the story of her father who spent his childhood in the Nazi concentration camp of Terezin, Prague. As the narrator seeks answers to her own existential questions, she unravels her cousin's deep secrets while providing an exposť of Nazi atrocities during the Second World War. Moving across the grim world of a concentration camp in Prague, the vibrant landscape of Rajasthan, and the rain-splashed streets of Paris, Dominique Varma's evocative prose is an ode to the indestructible spirit of the human race. Printed Pages: 192.
