Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Mahesh Jadu brings a kind, pensive tone to this story about Vishnu Bhushan, a young man growing up under colonial rule in Mauritius. Fans of world literature will sink into this lush novel about Vishnu's past and present. Jadu captures the rhythms of Vishnu's parents' accented English with a light touch, helping to dramatize the differences between the first- and second-generation characters in the story. In his well-thought-out performance, Jadu depicts a wide range of characters of varying ages and experiences. We are drawn into Vishnu's rich family history and deep contemplation, made more intimate by being told in the first person. Listeners will linger with pleasure over these chapters.
