Review

The Blue Bedspread is a strangely familiar work that is at the same time unique. Like a shy animal whose presence you barely notice, it leaves you breathless when it reveals itself. Images that strike you and phrases you want to remember are repeated in the novel leaving the reader surprised and comforted.

The repetition that Raj Kamal Jha uses, lends the writing the familiar feel. Yet it is this very technique which makes it deliberately fresh and unpretentious like a magical folktale. Reminiscent of the simple beauty and poignancy of Hesse`s Siddartha, The Blue Bedspread is an enchanting patchwork of life.

Raj Kamal Jha threads them together with quietly skillful pen.
