One Day

Ardashir Vakil (Author)
Synopsis One Day is a twenty-four-hour journey into the lives and minds of Ben Tennyson, a middle-class English teacher; Priya Patnaik, his enigmatic, thirty-something Indian Londoner wife of eight years; and their small boy, Whacka. In the course of the day—which happens to be Whacka's third birthday—we learn about a crisis that has thrown Ben and Priya's marriage into turmoil. Ardashir Vakil paints an unforgettable picture of the fin de si?cle in one of the great cities of the world. How have this couple come to such an impasse in the middle of their lives? What are their dreams made of? What will happen to them? What has happened to London? Ambitious, comic, deep, One Day holds up a mirror to our lives, our cities, our relationships, our personal histories, and our children.
