In Kashmir: a Quiet and Contemplative Man

 "(The author) explores the physical and emotional landscape of Kashmir — its beauty and terror — with restraint and sensitivity in this affecting and moving novel. The story often unfolds in a series of disjointed episodes as Kip’s mind, with its “islands of lucidity”, grapples with memories, reveries, dreams, and hallucinations."

"I enjoyed Chef by Jaspreet Singh (Bloomsbury). Its themes of food and war and love and poetry form a series of intricate tightropes that the author treads skilfully, bringing us, in a short book, a lot of pleasures."
