- THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TABLE
DetailsA beautiful novel written in the form of letters, it's a candid and heart-warming exchange between two friends, both doctors, one in London and the other in Kolkata. A tale of true friendship and love, the story is simple, yet powerful and appealing. It keeps the reader engaged till the very last word Circa 1990. A world drawn and woven with words. A bond punctuated by absence and distance .... Two continents. Two cities. Two people. And letters. Hundreds of them. Over years. Across oceans. Between hearts. Between Abhi, who is training to be a neurosurgeon in London and Uma, who is just stepping into the world of medicine in Kolkata. As they ink their emotions onto paper, their lives get chronicled in this subtly nuanced conversation through letters ....letters about dreams, desires, heartbreaks, and longings .... about a proverbial good life falling apart, about a failed marriage, a visceral loss, and about a dream that threatens social expectations.... Letters that talk. And don't. Letters about this and that. Letters about everything .... Letters with a story you would never expect. ABOUT THE AUTHOR : Madhumita Mukherjee is an author and a doctor. Madhumita Mukherjee grew up in Delhi and later did her medical studies at Calcutta National Medical College. Since 2001, she has been living in England and is a paediatrician. A few years ago, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and that gave her a different perspective, that of a patient. To take her mind off her ordeal, she began writing a novel, keeping the subject and plot close to her own experiences, as a doctor and then as a patient battling cancer.
