Latitudes of Longing

A sweeping debut novel about the desire and longing between humanity and the earth itself — by a major new literary talent from India.

Latitudes of Longing follows the interconnected lives of characters searching for true intimacy as they venture across the Indian subcontinent to tell an epic love story. We follow a scientist who studies trees and a clairvoyant who speaks to them; a geologist working to end futile wars over a glacier; octogenarian lovers; a mother struggling to free her revolutionary son; a yeti who seeks human companionship; a turtle that experiences miraculous transformations; and the ghost of an evaporated ocean as restless as the continents.

Binding them all together is a vision of life as vast as the universe itself. Richly imaginative and wryly perceptive, Latitudes of Longing offers a soaring view of humanity: our beauty and our ugliness, our capacity to harm and to love each other, and our mysterious and sacred relationship with nature.
