Beschreibung:

Nem is a student of English literature at Delhi university. He drifts between classes, weed-hazy parties and the amorous complexities of campus life, until a chance encounter with an art historian steers him into a world of pleasure and artistic discovery. Nems life is irrevocably transformed. One day, without warning, his mentor disappears. In the years that follow, Nem cocoons himself in South Delhi, writing for a chic cultural journal. When he is awarded a fellowship to London, a cryptic note plunges him into a search for the art historian-a search which turns into a reckoning with his past. Retelling the myth of poseidon and his youthful male devotee pelops, seahorse transforms a simple coming-of-age story into an epic drama of loss, love and healing.

There is a sense of timelessness to this beautifully crafted selection of short stories which are almost faultless in their perfection. They deserve to be read over and over again. - Kankana Basu, The Hindu Pariats voice is being heralded as one of the freshest of the decade and a literary force to be reckoned with. - Elle Best fiction (Debut)-bookmarking 2012, DNA Mumbai (B)eautifully written - Cosmopolitan Marvellous the short story in Pariats hands borrows from storytelling-it is written familiarly, invokes a sense of shared culture and maintains a casual reliance on the existing legends of the land. The collection lingers on in the memory as much as for it is said as what is left unsaid. - Karishma Attari, Asian age Many writers with an authentic voice on the region have made the cut in literary fiction - Mitra Phukan, Jahnavi Barua and Anjum Hasan to mention a few. Janice Pariat now joins this pantheon of excellence a superbly controlled style from a skilled pen. The reader leaves each story with reluctance-the shared pain and empathy remain with you long after you have turned the pages. Boats on land is quintessentially shillong, sketched by an insider.

Über diesen Titel:

Inhaltsangabe: Nem was not like his college classmates. Instead of crowding around a TV set, Nem opted for lonely walks where he could indulge his passion for photography, until the night he saw Nicholas, a young professor from London, with another male student. The affair is passionate and brief. When Nicholas returns to London, Nem must move on. He graduates and soon finds success as a critic in New Delhi's burgeoning art world. Then comes an invitation to speak to artists in London, and the past is suddenly resurrected. As London's cosmopolitan art scene envelops Nem, he is haunted by the possibilities of a life with Nicholas. But Nicholas eludes Nem, avoiding a reunion with his old student, but leaving clues that lead to someone else: Myra, a woman Nem thought was Nicholas's sister. Brought together by their love for Nicholas, Nem and Myra embark on a surprising friendship. Janice Pariat explores the concept of emotional memory with the inquisitive mind of a scientist and the prowess of a poet. Rich, immersive prose drives a story with international scope, one that seeks answers to the age-old mystery of what binds us to others, and how we can ever let them go.

Review:
"Janice Pariat s first novel has the piercing insight and linguistic felicity of her short fiction. It is an ardent and highly accomplished meditation on art, love and sexuality." "The Sunday Guardian""

"Janice Pariat s first novel has the piercing insight and linguistic felicity of her short fiction. It is an ardent and highly accomplished meditation on art, love and sexuality." "The Sunday Guardian"
"An imaginative reinterpretation of the myth of the sea god Poseidon and his young disciple Pelops, "Seahorse" is a coming of age story that is unafraid of plunging into deep waters. This is the first full-length novel from Janice Pariat, whose collection of short stories "Boats on Land" won the Crossword Book Award for Fiction in 2013. Effortless in its deconstruction of the concept of time, the nature of love and the inherent fluidity of sexuality, it s a gentle yet utterly absorbing novel that slowly but surely draws you into its world." "The New Indian Express"
""Seahorse" is a confirmation of Janice Pariat s talent. In its tracking of time and loss, it fulfills the promise of literature: that the reader while journeying through its pages is struck by a resonance, the echo of the lives of others to her own." "The Indian Express"
"In "Seahorse," Janice Pariat has offered us a novel that aspires to the seahorses magical dancea novel that is not only about actions but about ideas; that aspires to place the quest for desire and beauty at the centre of the human experience." Tishani Doshi, author of "Everything Begins Elsewhere"
"This elegant meditation on memory and desire is set in a world where love and absence go hand in hand. Read it for the luminous prose and listen for the click as character and destiny locks into place." Jeet Thayil, author of "Narcopolis"
"Janice Pariat is a startlingly brilliant and compassionate writer." Siddhartha Deb, author of "The Beautiful and the Damned: Life in the New India"
Praise for Janice Pariat's previous works:
Revelatory and Original. Jeet Thayil
Poignant, subtle and nuanced, a writer to watch out for. Manju Kapur
