About this title

Synopsis:

Prem Rustum, a celebrated aging Indian novelist, unexpectedly meets Maya, a vibrant aspiring writer, and surprises himself by following her to Paris. In the slow, sensuous summer that follows, Prem looks back on his muses, his art, and his lost loves. Maya’s presence brings Prem into direct confrontation with his mortality and desires. As he struggles anew with the eternal question of love, Prem’s longstanding friendship with Pascal, a fellow writer, illuminates them both in the final chapter of their lives.

Written with sureness of style and tempo, That Summer in Paris reflects on how art informs love—and love, literature. With elegance and humor and even heartbreak, Abha Dawesar delivers a novel at once seductive and contemplative.
