Up The Cosmopolitans to read an author at the peak of her powers long may they last Mint Fiercely intelligent The Cosmopolitans is a must read Indian ExpressChock full of irony A tantalizing novel about art and artists A joy to read OpenThe remarkable thing about Hasan's novel is that it forces you to have a conversation with yourself and it has been uite some time since a novel has been so intellectually provocative India Today. A very nice novel The characters the settings and the way she narrates the story is haunting Liked it very much

The CosmopolitansWith the unlikeliest of menThe Cosmopolitans is a novel of ideas and emotions one that uestions the place of art in modern life and draws a vivid portrait of a woman at odds with the world Tender and wry in eual measure and rich in thought and insight it confirms Anjum Hasan as one of our most exciting novelists todayReviewAn engaging uplifting read Intense and cerebral There’s a lightness of touch bordering on the zany Pick. Much deserved 5 starsIt's a very difficult review for me to write as the book invokes a whole plethora of emotions and feelings in me The best thing about the book is it presents a very contemporary and modern aspect of Indian writing one which is devoid of same old clichés and elaborate and often inane descriptions of mango trees and monsoons as Jeet Thayil puts so aptly The author tries to stay away from over fetishistic descriptions aand provides a very balanced view of things from the eyes of the narratorThe characters are uite well fleshed out the story keeps you on your toes even when it slows down and the 2 parts of the book work uite well in tandem to form a beautiful piece of narrativeHighly recommended for anyone looking for fresh Indian writing and a well told tale
