Each month we feature a new book written by one of our alumni. For April 2017, our author is Nidhi Dalmia (Jesus College, 1972).
Nidhi Dalmia was born into one of India’s oldest industrialist families. However, it was the spiritual environment and the Sanskrit texts of Vedas and Upanishads that were prevalent in his home and some of his greatest influences. Harp is his first novel in which he writes about love, longing, and coming of age. Moving through India, Europe and the USA, Harp follows the lives of three young people set in the context of the zeitgeist and idealism of the late sixties.
‘A deftly crafted and consistently compelling read from beginning to end, Harp is an extraordinarily entertaining novel that clearly documents author Nidhi Dalmia as an original, skilled, and innately talented storyteller.’ - Midwest Reviews
Nidhi Dalmia has a BA in PPE from University of Oxford. He graduated from the Sorbonne and also studied Management at Harvard Business School. Nidhi Dalmi divides his time between Delhi and Paris.
