Award-winning author Cyrus Mistry's first novel. "Drifter, dropout, dreamer, Jingo believes he has rejected any form of class privilege in a 'hideously unequal society'. Making a meagre living as a part-time door-to-door market researcher, he jots down notes on characters and insights for a novel. Is he serious about his self-professed vocation? Or just too laid-back, just too fond of getting high?". "As the story moves effortlessly from a middle-class Parsi housing colony to a far-flung slum on the outskirts of the city, memories of a bitter love affair continue to haunt Jingo but it's only when his other romance-with the city-erupts in a nightmare of horror that he realizes he'd better wake up before it's too late." "The Radiance of Ashesis a beautifully described tale of desire, duty and dreams. It is also a story about families, about the truths we hold and the lies we tell, about the fires that burn in each of us - what is left once the flames have died away." Key Features: This is award-winning author Cyrus Mistry's first novel. Cyrus Mistry is the author of Chronicle of a Corpse Bearer which won the DSC Prize for South Asian Literature 2014, one of the subcontinent's most prestigious literary prizes."
