Only for sale in India

A season-long diary by artist Somnath Hore capturing his thoughts on the work of Rodin and the hope of rain, the mangoes that ripen in the garden and the medical crisis that looms over the household, the friends that came to tea and the insecure future of independent India. Effortlessly flitting between topic great and small, he sculpts each thought into text with humour, honesty and humaneness, revealing in the process the incredibly gifted and sensitive mind that contributed to the making of one of the major painter-sculptors of our time. 

This volume contains the English translation of the diary accompanied by the artist's sketches as well as reproductions of the original Bengali text.
