A novel like none other' AMITAV GHOSH 'A masterpiece' AVNI DOSHI 'Wise, funny, touching' ROBERT MACFARLANE In this bold and brilliant work from the award-winning author of The Nine-Chambered Heart, journeys across continents and centuries intertwine in a multi-layered saga that unfolds through the lives of four unique characters. For Shai, lost and drifting, a visit to her hometown in India's Northeast offers the possibility of new ways of living. For Evelyn, a Cambridge student, scientific inspiration guides her to the forests of the lower Himalayas and a world she has only read about. For Johann, a German writer, travelling through Italy inspires him to develop ground-breaking ideas that will cement his place in history. And for a young Swede, an unwavering curiosity for earth's natural wonders takes him on an expedition that will forever alter the way we understand the world around us. A marvellous exploration of our ways of seeing, Everything the Light Touches brings together people and places that seem, at first, far removed from each other in time and place. Yet as we discover, all is resonance, all is connection.
