“This is the intimate story of one man and his love of four women, each of them very different, but each in her turn the object of his hopes and desires. What does Ved Mehta want of these women? To be loved by them, to marry them, to have children with them. He has been blind since childhood. Love, marriage, children – all these, he imagines, would make him whole. And the women, Gigi, Vanessa, Lola and Kilty? What do they want? It seems for a time that they too want to love him, marry him, have his children. But desire is a dangerous emotion and the state of being in love both illusory and mysterious.

Author Description

Ved Mehta (Born March 21, 1934) is a writer who was born in Lahore, India (now a Pakistani city) to a Hindu family. He lost his sight at the age of four as the result of an attack of cerebrospinal meningitis. His father, a doctor, tried to give him an education, like his other children, so that he could become a self-supporting citizen of the world. Mehta lived in the Western world since 1949 and became an American citizen in 1975. He was educated at Pomona College, Balliol College, Oxford where he read Modern History, and at Harvard University. His first book was published in 1957 and since then has written 14 books, including three that deal with the subject of blindness, as well as hundreds of articles and short stories for British, Indian and American publications such as the New Yorker.
