Amber Dusk
Indialog (2007) 
ISBN: 978-8184430080 

The book smells of Calcutta streets and resonates with the seductive tunes of Parisian nights. Robot oracles, the enigmatic photographer Valence Jourdain, a shadowy Blue Princess, Indian tribesmen and the mystical Lake Malaren colour this fascinating narrative, creating an edgy reality. The novel weaves together Calcutta and Paris and the lives and passions of the unforgettable characters that walk their streets. This is a story about love, loathing and beatitude and the quest for peace in a time of intolerance. The book has been described by a critic as `a memorable novel of East-West encounter' while a reviewer of a literary journal said this, `is a new kind of writing emerging within Indian English writing'.
