Description:
Gita Mehta is a bestselling author and has written articles for a number of Indian, European and American magazines. Her books have been translated into thirteen languages and published in twenty seven countries. She lives in New York, London and India.

An elderly bureaucrat escapes the world to run a guest house on the banks of India's holiest river, the Narmada, only to find he has made the wrong choice. Too many lives converge here. Among those who disturb his tranquility are a privileged young executive bewitched by a mysterious lover; a novice Jain monk who has abandoned opulence for poverty; a heartbroken woman with a golden voice; an ascetic and the child he has saved from
prostitution. Through their stories A River Sutra explores the fragile longings of the human heart and the sacred power of the river.
