When newly-weds Rupa and Aruna arrive in swinging sixties London, their marriage soon starts to crumble and Rupa finds herself a single parent in a northern inner city. Daisy Abey’s brilliant novel alternates between exotic scenes set in a village in the jungle (to quote a title of Leonard Woolf’s) and the very different worlds of London and Leeds. When Rupa meets poet Chris Hunter it seems her problems have ended but this is far from the case. Rupa’s difficulties are compounded by tensions between conflicting customs of East and West.
