Synopsis: From the author of The Blue Bedspread, a wonderful new novel about family, fantasy and love. Amir, Mala and their daughter are normal people. Amir goes to his office; Mala reads the newspaper; their young daughter plays alone. But Jha has not chosen to tell a tale of everyday life in Calcutta. Instead he looks inwards at the elaborate stories that people tells themselves. In the looking-glass world of the novel, nothing is quite what it seems. And yet, at the same time, it is all very familiar. If You Are Afraid of Heights is about the private journeys that people go on in their minds; about imaginations fuelled by the images and narratives of a city.
About the Author: Raj Kamal Jha grew up in Calcutta. He lives in New Delhi and is executive editor of The Indian Express. His first novel, The Blue Bedspread, was published all over the world to spectacular acclaim. It won the Commonwealth Writers' Award for Best First Book (Eurasia) and was shortlisted for the Guardian Book Award and the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize.
