A sharp and witty tale of growing up in the politically restive and violent environment of the North East of India.
Daisy Hasan Set in the politically restive city of Shillong in North East India, The To-Let House is a contemporary coming-of-age story that gives a moving insight into a dark, unsettling world. Di, Addy, Kulay and Clemmie’s tormented passage through adolescence is framed by the region’s own violent search for identity, resulting in a vividly portrayed narrative that gently blurs the division between the personal and the political. Written by Daisy Hasan. Cover design by Avinash Veeraraghavan.
