An Indian Affair by Elizabeth J. Currie
Salia Bennett is a successful freelance journalist and travel writer, living in Hampstead with her husband Matt, editor at a Bloomsbury literary agency. Ostensibly settled and happily married, Salia never questions the validity of her relationship with Matt, although it has been many years since they ever shared a bed.

Salia is commissioned to write an important new feature on conservation and tourism in India but, although once being the magical land of her childhood dreams, she arrives there to find a very different world, perplexing, frustrating and challenging. As she struggles to adjust and develop themes for her research, she meets with zoologist and wildlife photographer Sanjay Maneshinde, a charismatic but intimidating man. Across the course of the time they spend together in the Indian wilderness and under the influence of such a different world, Salia is forced to confront the truth of her life and marriage, and her growing attraction for this man.

‘An Indian Affair’ explores the complex emotional and practical issues surrounding the dynamics of relationships: of long-term marriage, of love affairs and a woman’s experience of these, both in the present and, too, in the world that was British India of the 1940s.
