'Anita Desai is a magnificent writer' - Salman Rushdie 'Every new work from her is a gift' - Kamila Shamsie 'Tantalising' - Financial Times From three times Booker-shortlisted author Anita Desai, Rosarita is a beautiful, haunting novel that explores memory, grief, and a young woman's determination to forge her own path. A young student sits on a bench in a park in San Miguel, Mexico. Bonita is away from her home in India to learn Spanish. She is alone, somewhere she has no connection to. It is bliss. And then a woman approaches her. The woman claims to recognize Bonita because she is the spitting image of her mother, who made the same journey from India to Mexico as a young artist. No, says Bonita, my mother didn't paint. She never travelled to Mexico. But this strange woman insists, and so Bonita follows her. Into a story where Bonita and her mother will move apart and come together, and where the past threatens to flood the present, or re-write it. **Praise for Anita Desai** Hypnotically beautiful and subtle' - Financial Times 'Bewitchingly beautiful' - The Times 'Profoundly elegiac' - New Statesman
