About the Author:

Born in Manchester, Tim Parks grew up in London and studied at Cambridge and Harvard. In 1981 he moved to Italy where he has lived ever since. He is the author of novels, non-fiction and essays, including Europa, Cleaver, A Season with Verona and Teach Us to Sit Still. He has won the Somerset Maugham, Betty Trask and Llewellyn Rhys awards, and been shortlisted for the Booker Prize. He lectures on literary translation in Milan, writes for publications such as the New Yorker and the New York Review of Books, and his many translations from the Italian include works by Moravia, Calvino, Calasso, Tabucchi and Machiavelli.

Review:

"It's a cracker - clever, funny and insightful, with complicated, conflicted and totally convincing Beth at its heart" Daily Mail "Parks writes with detachment, wit and intelligence, and the troubled voice of Beth is entirely convincing" -- Kate Saunders The Times "An eminently readable and thought-provoking novel that teases you to the last page, and possibly beyond" Spectator "Engaging, persistent, lyrical and entertaining" Independent "Excellent... at once comic and gently moving" -- David Evans Financial Times

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Sex is forbidden at the Dasgupta Institute. So what is the sparkling, magnetically attractive Beth Marriot doing here? Beth is fighting demons: a catastrophic series of events has undermined all prospect of happiness. Trauma leaves her no alternative but to bury herself in the austere asceticism of a community that wakes at 4am, doesn t permit eye contact, let alone speech, and keeps men and women strictly segregated. But the curious self dies hard. Conflicted and wayward, Beth stumbles on a diary and cannot keep away from it, or the man who wrote it. Originally published with the title The Server.
