Umi Sinha will be reading from her compelling and finely wrought epic novel, Belonging.
From the darkest days of the British Raj through to the aftermath of the First World War, Belonging tells the interwoven story of three generations and their struggles to understand and free themselves from a troubled history steeped in colonial violence. It is a novel of secrets that unwind through Lila’s story, through her grandmother’s letters home from India and the diaries kept by her father, Henry, as he puzzles over the enigma of his birth and his stormy marriage to the mysterious Rebecca.
Umi will be talking about her inspirations and explain why she was so drawn to this period of Indian history. This is a free event with wine and refreshments.
