Two-time Giller Prize winner M.G. Vassanji returns with a powerful new novel about grief and second chances, tradition and rebellion, set in vibrant present-day Delhi. Munir Khan, a recent widower from Toronto, on a whim decides to visit Delhi, the city of his forbears. Born in Kenya, he has lost all family connections, and has never visited India before. While sitting in the bar of the Delhi Recreational Club where he´s staying, an attractive woman joins his table to await her husband. A sparring match ensues. The two are from different worlds: Munir is a westernized agnostic of Muslim origin; Mohini, a modern Hindu woman. Utterly witty and charming, she´s religiously traditional, but also a liberal and provocative newspaper columnist. Against her better judgment, Mohini agrees to show Munir around the city. As they explore the thriving markets and historical buildings of Old Delhi, an inexplicable attraction begins. What follows is a passionate love affair--uncontrollable yet impossible. This is a period of rising Indian nationalism in modern India that at times finds outlet in senseless violence. Constantly lurking at Munir´s Club is the menacing and foreboding presence of a fanatical nationalist group. To them Munir Khan is simply a Muslim ´´love-jihadi´´ who has led the pride of Hindu womanhood, Mohini Singh, astray. At what cost, their passion?

A gripping tale of mesmerists, elemental spirits, and the ghosts of history.When James Esdaile, a Scottish doctor, travels to India in the early 19th century in service to the British East India Company, he employs mesmerism - an ´´alternate science” that allows the practitioner to control a subject’s mind and body - as a palliative anesthetic. His ability is enhanced by the use of a curious artifact: a small statue from a pre-Hindu culture.In his correspondence with Rev. William Davey, the head of a secret society of English mesmerists, Esdaile offers to bring the artifact back at the end of his time abroad. When Esdaile abruptly changes his mind, however, he becomes an enemy of the secret society and must accept a devil’s bargain to protect himself. He arranges for a young woman to be inhabited by a chthonios, an elemental spirit of the earth, and he marries her just before leaving India. In order to free himself from the spirit, he commits suicide in the exact center of the Crystal Palace - where neither mesmeric power nor the wrath of the chthonios can affect him.But that is just the beginning. Reverend Davey, following the story told by Esdaile’s widow, now freed from the possession of the earth-spirit, travels in search of the elusive artifact, following its trail all the way to India and back again. Davey is drawn into the interplay of forces - mesmerists, elemental spirits, and the ghosts of history - in his quest to obtain the artifact while the spirits search for a way to open the Glass Door that separates them from the world of men, who exiled them so long ago. 1.
