The Assassin's Song by M.G. Vassanji ISBN 13: 9780385663519

ISBN 10: 038566351X

Hardcover; Toronto: Doubleday Canada, August 21, 2007; ISBN-13: 978-0385663519

In the aftermath of the brutal violence that gripped western India in 2002, Karsan Dargawalla, heir to Pirbaag -- the shrine of a mysterious, medieval sufi -- begins to tell the story of his family. His tale opens in the 1960s: young Karsan is next in line after his father to assume lordship of the shrine, but he longs to be "just ordinary." Despite his father's pleas, Karsan leaves home behind for Harvard, and, eventually, marriage and a career. Not until tragedy strikes, both in Karsan's adopted home in Canada and in Pirbaag, is he drawn back across thirty years of separation and silence to discover what, if anything, is left for him in India.From the Trade Paperback edition.
