Publisher's Summary

Meet the members of the Sunset Club: Pandit Preetam Sharma, Nawab Barkatullah Baig, and Sardar Boota Singh. Friends for over 40 years, they are now in their 80s. And every evening, 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 from January 26, 2009, to January 26, 2010, Khushwant Singh brings his characters vibrantly to life, with his piquant portrayals of their fantasies and foibles, his unerring ear for dialogue and his genius for capturing the flavor 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 corruption 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. A masterpiece from one of India's most-loved storytellers, The Sunset Club will have you in tears and laughter, and grip you from the first minute to the last.
