LONGLISTED FOR THE DSC PRIZE FOR SOUTH ASIAN LITERATURE

Amal is driving his wife Claud from London to her parents' country house. In the wake of Claud's miscarriage, it is a journey that will push their relationship - once almost perfect - towards possible collapse.

In this, his latest novel, Govinden casts a critical eye on a society in which, in spite of never-ending advances in social media communications, the young still find it difficult to communicate.

A devastatingly passionate and real portrait of a marriage, 'Black Bread White Beer' keenly captures the abandon, selfishness, hazards and pleasures that come with giving your life to another.
