Synopsis: Youngest-uncle, octogenarian and master storyteller, is the cherished eldest member of his deceased brothers family, and lives with his aged nephews, their sons, wives and children in an old colonial mansion in Allahabad. The colourful stories of his youth his brush with the freedom struggle, his many years in Fiji, his marriage to a local woman recounted with great flourish and comic timing, are a huge hit with the children of the house. But Swapan, his corporate son born from a late, second marriage, is wary of his fathers dubious past. Home for the Durga Puja festivities, he feels duty-bound to take his father away with him, far from the comfort of his extended family and the courtesies of a traditional Prabashi household, to the tightly nuclear confines of his own Another lyrical novel from the author of And Where, My Friend, Lay You Hiding, A House in the Old Style is an elegant and understated account of an anachronistic household and its Old World values
