About The Book

Khuku, a housewife, is irritated with the Muslims because their call to prayer wakes her up early every morning; her husband, a retired businessman, has been hired to cure a 'sick’ sweet factory that doesn't particularly want to be cured. Across town, Khuku's brother worries about his son's affiliations with the Communist Party, but only because they may affect his ever-so-gradually coalescing marriage prospects. Freedom Song is vintage Amit Chaudhuri, playing with big ideas while evoking the smallest aspects of everyday life with acute tenderness and extraordinary beauty.

'This is writing of great precision and economy, each incident, each small relvelation about the past, selected like a careful brushstroke.'

– Penelope Lively, Spectator

'Subtle and strong... Chaudhuri's subject, in this tender and capricious book, is inexhaustible.'
