Bloomsbury to Publish Faraway Music by Sreemoyee Piu Kundu
A liberated, dynamic and successful writer, Priya has everything she has ever wanted, until she’s revisited by her past…
About the book: Faraway Music is the story of a young Bengali girl, and her stumbles through the world of love. First as an adolescent in Calcutta, where she grows up in a loving home with her mother and grandparents, then as a gutsy journalist in love with her married boss, who finds herself caught in the nexus between politicians and the media, and finally as the reclusive writer married to an artist in the United States. Sensuous, profound, lyrical and moving, Faraway Music is the story of family, friendship, fame, love, loss…and all that lies in between.
