Funeral Nights – Kynpham Sing Nongkynrih

£19.99

Paperback

A group of friends travel to the North of India to witness the last performance of an ancient Lyngngam funeral ceremony, only to arrive eleven days early. Stuck in the jungle of the West Khasi Hills, they pass the time by sharing stories around the fire. Inspired by Boccaccio’s Decameron and The Arabian Nights, this is intimate access to a whole world, spectacular in its documentation of a tribe’s life and culture, lush, warm, and entirely delightful in its telling.

‘A pathbreaking novel in both its writing and subject, and peppered with unexpected moments of humour, there is much wisdom to be gained from Funeral Nights.’ The Telegraph (India)
