Book Review: Tomb of Sand
First book in any Indian language to win the International Booker Prize
Hello Friends! This is a short in-between post to share with you all my review of this year’s International Booker Prize winner.
My review was just published in a publication called The Unpopulist as part of their series on India’s 75th independence anniversary (August 15th), which is also the anniversary of its troubled Partition.
The book Ret Samadhi was written originally in Hindi by Geetanjali Shree and skillfully translated into English as Tomb of Sand by Daisy Rockwell. It went on to win the International Booker Prize for 2022. That’s a first for a book in any Indian language!
Hope you enjoy the review and/or let me know what you think.
PS. There are no spoilers!
Will buy this book
Reena, enjoyed your review. Have started the book but have not made it too far as yet.
