Tower PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tower free pdf This is an epic tale of loss and longing that captures the cultural, urban and sociological changes in urban Bombay though the ages - from the 1920s to 1970s. "Tower" addresses the timeless themes of love and death, loss and retum, and the validity of faith. It speaks of a house that a young man built in Bombay in the 1920s to accommodate his family and relatives, the years that saw its rooms fill up, the looming threat of their emptying, and eventual deliverance from that threat. Echoing with ghostly voices from the past, and watched over by the three Fate Sisters, Framji Building is at the heart of this epic tale of loss and longing, charged with gothic, supernatural and magical forces. Lyrical, allusive and inspired, marrying myth and matters of fact, "Tower" is a profound meditation on life, death and what lies beyond.
