Maps for Lost Lovers: by Nadeem Aslam
Maps for Lost Lovers:

epicharis, January 19, 2010

There were two editions of this book - a British one and an American one. They have different dust jackets, but are otherwise identical. I own one of each. This book 's story takes place in the milieu of several communities of Northern Indians living in an industrial town in England, and there are the usual conflicts of one religious group versus another and the traditional world versus the secular world in which England continues to believe it lives. But the subject matter of the Tale is the extremely various ways in which lovers can or must express their love. Written in a lucid and beautiful prose, the Great Tale meanders from one crisis to another to end in a great tragedy surrounded by the aura of redemption. It is one of two books from the last ten years I am really glad I did not miss.
