Summary

Anu Kumar's prose is very evocative and full of excellent images. She has a great gift for physical description and is indeed a writer to watch. -Pankaj Mishra, author of An End to Suffering:The Buddha in the World The violence that explodes in Aditi's life one sultry afternoon in a town where nothing ever happens, has unexpected and spiralling consequences. Letters for Paul is the story of Aditi's attempts to understand events in her life that seemingly have no answers. Her search for an answer to this is complicated with the other mysteries she is confronted with. Events that occurred long back in the past, others that have no answers and some that people refuse to answer. Her efforts to understand her changing world, to make sense of the violence hidden in everyday monotony, leave Aditi sometimes convinced of her own powerlessness. She persists with her search, however, conjuring up her own events or writing letters that remain unanswered all to establish her own presence. Matters end in disgrace but Aditi does find success of a kind.
