ABOUT THE BOOK:
FIRESONGS is the unputdownable story of a lionheart from Central Asia called Zura. The young hunter lives in the Edenic, pre-Lapsarian, mythical village of Min-Arkhar, cut off from the illusions and trappings of a modern life. This is a tale of how Zura, on a quest for the ideal, leaves behind the unnavigable Pamir region and unearths the wonders of a “brave new world”. He goes to a big city, hears of the Soviet Army, and meets people who acquaint him with ideas of socialism and justice. Dinesh Chandra Chattopadhyay weaves into the fairytale-like fabric of this bildungsroman the real spirit of the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917. Masterfully conceived and brilliantly executed, FIRESONGS is a gripping tale of love and adventure, of promises kept and vows broken, of friendships and betrayals, fortitude and trials, journeys and destinations, and most importantly, of finding oneself on the way.
