Twenty years ago, six Penn students shared a house, naively certain that their friendships would endure--until the death of their ringleader and dear friend Bea splintered the group for good. Now, mostly estranged from one another, the remaining five reluctantly gather at that same house on the eve of what would have been Bea's fortieth birthday. But along with the return of the friends come old grudges, unrequited feelings, and buried secrets. Catherine, the CEO of a domestic empire, and Owen, a stay-at-home dad, were picture-perfect college sweethearts--but now teeter on the brink of disaster. Lindy, a well-known musician, is pushing middle age in an industry that's all about youth and slowly self-destructing as she grapples with her own identity. Behind his smile, handsome plastic surgeon Colin harbors the heartbreaking truth about his own history with Bea. And Annie carefully curates her life on Instagram and Facebook, keeping up appearances so she doesn't have to face the truth about her own empty reality. Reunited in the place where so many dreams began, and bolstered by the hope of healing, each of them is forced to confront the past.

For some years now, it s been happy season for books and publishing in India. But the most enduring success story in English-language trade publishing in the country indeed in all of Asia began long before this. The present gold rush owes a great deal to the foresight of Penguin, easily the most prestigious global publisher, which made a home here when the world wasn t yet in thrall to the Indian market. Penguin India began operating at a time when trade publishing in English was virtually unknown in the country. The company launched its local programme in 1987 with seven titles: two novels in English and one in translation from Bengali, two biographies, a travelogue and a book of poems. Two decades on, it publishes 200 new books annually across a wide range of genres. Along the way, it has published authors from every country in the Subcontinent. In 2005, with the launch of its Hindi list, Penguin became the first global publisher to publish in an Indian language other than English, and now releases over sixty titles every year in Hindi, Marathi, Malayalam and Urdu. When it was set up in a two-bedroom flat in New Delhi, Penguin India s most valuable asset was a boardroom table made of teak, at which strategies were devised, contracts signed and commitments made. Today, the table is no longer listed among the company s assets. Instead, it can boast the finest list of Indian authors (or authors of Indian origin) anywhere in the world. And the list keeps growing: among the long-admired names we ll publish in the coming months are Kamala Markandaya, with her posthumous novel Bombay Tiger, and Amitav Ghosh, with his stunning new novel Sea of Poppies, the first in a trilogy. Penguin India s publishing remains as vibrant and confidently eclectic as our first clutch of titles promised. Our best authors, our true wealth, have stayed with us through the years, and helped us bring the best in contemporary Indian and international literature to readers everywhere. These commemorative volumes of the finest writing we ve published up to our twentieth year are dedicated to each one of them. Showcased here are authors who have topped best-seller charts in India and abroad, and won virtually every major literary prize, including the Nobel Prize, the Jnanpith Award, the Man Booker Prize, the Sahitya Akademi Award and the Commonwealth Writers Prize. It is unlikely you will find a richer, more representative collection of writing from or about South Asia. Now, when virtually every major international trade publisher is present in India, the fastest-growing English-language publishing market in the world, Penguin India remains committed to the vision laid out on that teak table twenty years ago. It is a vision that has ensured that Penguin in India, as in the rest of the world, is the publisher of choice for the best writers and the most discerning readers. And this is exactly how things will be twenty years from now.
