This is the story of another world.

How do we understand the concept of time? This novel has brought out a supernatural message from time's internal cave. It is nothing new for two persons to be attracted to each other. This novel sees this oft-played game from an entirely new perspective. Is love and desire the same? Can these two be put in the same paradigm of understanding? Or is there a thin line, which delineates them apart and yet, so close?

Each of us accepts our own perception of the truth. Some would say love is abstract, while desire is concrete. Is it so? Desire could also be abstract. Why do we love someone? Can it be explained by the theories of chemistry? Science has given a clinical definition. The key lies in certain hormones and neurotransmitters in the brain. Is life science the best alternative to our understanding of this? If that were so, the beauty of love gets lost in the ravages of misconceptions. 
The two protagonists in this story are searching for that elusive answer, while finding themselves in a supernatural cusp of time. It is that cusp which is known in science as Vertical Time. Or in our philosophy as ‘Turiya’ postulated in the Upanishads. This is where time stands still and veers away from the well-known path of horizontal movement. 

In the light and darkness of the maze, we know as past and present, they seem to throw the two characters in this novel into their own subconscious, and titillate them to play the game of love in surreal time.

About the author

 Aniruddha Bose, born on 19th September 1955 in Kolkata,  has written several books in Bengali and English.

BENGALI NOVELS

His first book ANWESHAN created a sensation to the style, presentation, theme, and philosophy in Bengali Literature. His second novelNISHABDE reflected another philosophy. NISHABDE is a tale of a mosaic of conflicting paradigms. It represented India at the London Book Fair. His third novel DEKHA was again a reflection of highlighting the east through the vision of young British lady of Indian origin, coming to visit India. This also mesmerised the readers with its unique theme. In his fourth novel  CHAKRA a psychological murder thriller, has tried to break the standard norms of both in the east and west, with a new concept of his knowledge of science and medicine and redefining murder in a new philosophy. His next novel TOMAKE based on applying physics and mathematical concepts is a sweet lyrical love story literature in an unfathomed form.

Aniruddha Bose’s thriller PURSUIT is something different from its genre. It has everything a thriller possess - multiple mysterious murders; beautiful sirens; handsome hunks; powerful men who can change the world; a staggering international conspiracy; highly complex international geo-economics and politics; the just dose of sex and so on. However, what makes it stand out in the crowd is its philosophy, the humanitarian angle and the universal message of peace and harmony.
There are twists in the tale that suddenly come down on the reader as bolts from the blue. That is expected in a top class thriller. What this book additionally possesses is the touch of universal melancholy that affects every thinking man and woman of every nationality.

Greedy international big shots conspire to conquer the world, and spill the blood of the innocent and guilty alike. Small-time characters are trapped in this web engulfed by the events beyond their control and comprehension. Amidst this chaos, there remains a blind Buddhist monk in an isolated monastery in the high Himalayas, who think about these chaotic currents. He sits in his isolated shrine, watching and analysing the events in the world, like the Nimrod.

The protagonist of the story, a highly intelligent young lady who is fortunate enough to get teachings from the contrasting two worlds, the modern western as well as the timeless philosophy of Hinduism and Buddhism, gets caught in the web and flows along the current.

Besides searching the reasons of the murders, she also searches for the reason of her existence, or rather the existence and meaning of the life as a whole. 
Does she reach her destination?

Aniruddha Bose narrates the story in his inimitable style, and draws the reader like a powerful magnet. The story culminates in a startling revelation of the truth. To find it, and to find your own truth, you have to read this unusual book.
The #1 New York Times bestselling author's ultimate edition of his wildly successful first novel featuring his "preferred text"—and including his special Neverwhere tale "How the Marquis Got His Coat Back"

Published in 1997, Neil Gaiman's darkly hypnotic first novel, Neverwhere, heralded the arrival of a major talent and became a touchstone of urban fantasy. Over the years, a number of versions were produced both in the U.S. and the U.K. Now Gaiman's preferred edition of his classic novel reconciles these works and reinstates a number of scenes cut from the original published books.

Neverwhere is the story of Richard Mayhew, a young London businessman with a good heart and an ordinary life, which is changed forever when he discovers a girl bleeding on the sidewalk. He stops to help her—an act of kindness that plunges him into a world he never dreamed existed.

Slipping through the cracks of reality, Richard lands in the Neverwhere—a London of shadows and darkness, monsters and saints, murderers and angels that exists entirely in a subterranean labyrinth. The Neverwhere is home to Door, the mysterious girl Richard helped in the London Above. Door, a noblewoman whose family has been murdered, is on a quest to find the agent that slaughtered her family and thwart the destruction of this underworld kingdom. If Richard is ever to return to his former life, he must join the journey to save Door's world—and find a way to survive.

A hallucinatory fantasia of mystery, mythology, and terror that "draws equally from George Lucas, Monty Python, Doctor Who, and John Milton" (USA Today), Neverwhere is an "Alice in Wonderland with a punk edge" (Poppy Z. Brite), "that is both the stuff of dreams and nightmares" (San Diego Union-Tribune).
