Inspired by visits to sweet shops in the by-lanes of Calcutta, Amit Chaudhuri’s latest collection, Sweet Shop, is a poetic mediation on culture and memory, and – for anyone who knows their sandesh from their chhana – a lyrical exploration of India’s most indulgent treats.
Named by The Guardian as ‘...one of his generation’s best writers’, Chaudhuri’s best collection yet is up for grabs, with three copies of Sweet Shop available to win courtesy of Salt. To enter, and for Terms and Conditions, see below. The winner will be selected at random. Prize draw closes at 23:59 on 27 July 2019.
