About the Book
In A man comes home to find a note from Bindo- his estranged lover asking to meet. Everything about Bindo angers him- her beauty, pride and poise; the sexual attraction she continues to exert upon him.

He recognizes in himself again the agonizing jealousy which had forced her to leave him. And he fears her uncanny ability to pierce the barriers he has erected around himself.

Yet the tow meet- in each other’s houses, in restaurants and parks across Delhi- still attracted to each other but haunted by their past, still inflicting pain, locked in a battle of doomed love. But when, after a drunken evening, he wakes up in Bindo’s bed at her feet, he finds himself stripped of all ego, and helpless.

Bold and ahead of its time, Relapse is an intense exploration of physical and emotional desire and the inscrutable ways of men and women in love. A compact love story of visceral impact, and a portrait of Delhi that now exists only in memory, relapse in a modern classic.
