What would you do if the world were about to end? She is running on dream walkways into the day that will dawn bright, like any other, hanging by a thread on a piece of news, a pendulum swinging from now to then, before to after, panic to peace to panic, capital to city, city to suburb, remembering to forgetting? In the course of twenty-four hours, nine characters across five cities are faced with a pressing need to examine their past. As each of them confronts the realities within, the world itself explodes into chaos, the disintegration of civic order mirroring the breakdown of individual sanities. A powerful first novel from a critically acclaimed poet, translator and fiction-writer, Rupture is a book in which every word, every emotion, resonates with a heightened sense of intensity. Sampurna Chattarji brings to her writing a poetry and potency that is rare, and the sheer pace of the narrative pulls the reader in with its urgency.
