Read full description of the books:



Una terribile leggenda percorre la storia pluricentenaria dell’aristocratica ed ec-centrica famiglia indiana dei Dard-e-Dil: la maledizione dei quasi-gemelli. È per colpa di due quasi-gemelli se i Dard-e-Dil non sono diventati sovrani dell’India inte-ra, e se la famiglia si è divisa al momen-to della Partizione del Pakistan dall’In-dia. Finché Aliya era bambina, le vicende dei quasi-gemelli erano tutto quello che serviva per spiegare il male del mondo; crescendo, però, si accorge che quelle immaginifiche storie di famiglia non le bastano più per capire la vita, per capire l’amore. Tornata a Karachi per le vacanze dopo quattro anni di college in America, cerca così la risposta a una serie di do-mande, a cominciare dal perché dei sen-timenti contrastanti che prova per l’ame-ricanizzato Khaleel, così sexy e però così irrimediabilmente originario del quartiere “sbagliato” della città. Forse alla fine tutto quello che c’è da scoprire è che non è l’a-ristocratico zafferano il sapore della vita. L’ingrediente che dà senso all’esistenza è un altro, meno nobile eppure assolu-tamente indispensabile: quel sale senza il quale le pietanze non sanno di niente; l’amore, senza il quale nessuna storia al mondo ha un senso.
