Meet the members of the Sunset Club: Pndit Preetam Sharma, Nawab Barkatullah Baig and Sardar Boota Singh. Friends for over forty years, they are now in their eighties. Every evenin, at the sunset hour, they sit together on a bench in Lodhi
Gardens to exchange news and views on the events of the day, talking about everything from love, lust, sex, and scandal to religion and politics.
As he follows a year in the lives of the three men, Khushwnat Singh brings his characters vibrantly to life, with his piquant portrayals of their fantasies and foible, his unerring ear for dialouge and his genius for capturing the flavour and texture of everyday life in their households. Interwoven with this compelling human story is another chronicle-of a year in the life of India, as the country goes through the cycle of seasons, the tumult of general elections, violence, natural disasters and corrutpion in high places.
In turn ribald and lyrical, poignant and profound, The Sunset Club is a deeply moving exploration of friendship, sexuality, old age and infirmity; a joyous celebration of nature; an insightful portrait of India's paradoxes and complexities.
'Stitched together by Khushwant Singh's knowledgeabe and poetic meditations on the changing seasons of Delhi'
