Baban’s arrival accompanies other momentous events and sets Qayenaat off on the most unexpected journey of her life—to the heart of rural, war-torn India, and into a relationship with the unlikeliest of men.The Cosmopolitans is a novel of ideas and emotions—one that questions the place of art in modern life, and draws a vivid portrait of a woman at odds with the world.
