The Last Song of Dusk

 
Siddharth Dhanvant Shanghvi (Author)
Synopsis Pirouetting between laughter and tears, Siddharth Dharnvant Shanghvi’s technicolour debut tells the story of four extraordinary lives, Of Anuradha Gandharva, gifted with astonishing beauty and magical songs; of her husband, Vardhmaan, struggling with secret losses; of Nandini, deviously alluring artist, with a pendant for panthers and walking on water; and of Shloka, the Gandharvas’ delicate, disturbingly silent child. As their fate unrevel in an old villa in 1920s’ India, they learn to navigate the ever-chaning landscape of love, and in doing so encounter a host of eccentrics: Mr. Bunkusdaas, the father of Bollywood cinema; Stella Dimm, ‘England’s first ever Tit girl’; Libya Dass, rarely seen out of her porcelain bathtub; and Percival Worthington, the aristocratically limp son of the governor of Bombay, on whom Nandini rashly sets her sights. Told with tenderness and with dazzling wit, the Last song of Dusk will haunt you long afater you have turned the final page.
