A paying guest seems like a win-win proposition to the Joshi family. He s ready with the rent, he s willing to lend a hand when he can and he s happy to listen to Mrs Joshi on the imminent collapse of our culture.

But he s also a man of mystery. He has no last name. He has no family, no friends, no history and no plans for the future.

The siblings Tanay and Anuja are smitten by him. He overturns their lives. And when he vanishes, he breaks their hearts.

Elegantly wrought and exquisitely spare, Cobalt Blue is a tale of rapturous love and fierce heartbreak told with tenderness and unsparing clarity.

Author Bio: Sachin Kundalkar is a novelist, playwright and film-maker. He has written and directed four feature films. He won the National Award for the Best Screenplay for the film Gandha in 2008.

Jerry Pinto s debut novel, Em and the Big Hoom, won the Hindu Literary Prize. He also won the National Award for Helen: The Life and Times of an H-Bomb. He tweets as mahimkajerry.

Review: Invalid input characters filtered from this field Weaving two relationships together, one homosexual, the other heterosexual, Kundalkar creates a work that is replete with ellipses and silences. [And] Jerry Pinto s translation is fluid and immensely readable
