Bye-Bye, Blackbird

Hind Pocket Books, 1971 - 266 páginas

Written in vivid narrative and chiselled prose, Bye-Bye Blackbird explores the lives of the outsiders seeking to forge a new identity in an alien society. Set against England's green and grisly landscape, enigmatic and attractive to some, depressing and nauseating to others, it is a story of everyday heroism against subtle oppression, crumbling traditions and homesickness.

'Characters grow with life, the scenes are delicately painted and the nuances of changing mood skilfully transmitted.' — Hindu

'More than a novel, it is a psychological study of the love-hate relationship the immigrants have towards their country of adoption.' — Indian Express
