About the book
Set against the backdrop of twentieth-century India, The Long Walk Home illuminates history — partition, two Indo-Pak wars, the rise of religious fundamentalism — through the life of one man.
A story of faith and fundamentalism, misguided passions and accidental heroism, it is woven through a narrative of love, murder, vendetta, and greed. In the gathering extremism — the city is put under curfew; Hit Lists are drawn; his wife subscribes to a rabid preacher; his Hindu friend flees — the protagonist makes a terrible error. As he nears the end of his life, he wonders: will there be a chance for redemption?
