The Dark Beneath the Waves

Manan Karki

Fiction | Novel


The Dark Beneath the Waves is set in the hinterlands of the Nepali Himalaya, and it’s against this almost ethereal backdrop that the very human narrative unfolds—of treachery and deceit, of guilt and a desperate search for redemption. Marked by the poise and poetry of its language, and its evocation of the landscape in all its grandeur and desolation, the novel is a lyrical exploration of human frailty and of human despair. 

When Breath Becomes Air

Paul Kalanithi

Non-Fiction | Memoir


A profoundly moving, exquisitely observed memoir by a young neurosurgeon faced with a terminal cancer diagnosis who attempts to answer the question ‘What makes a life worth living?’ What do you do when the future, no longer a ladder toward your goals in life, flattens out into a perpetual present? What does it mean to have a child, to nurture a new life as another fades away? These are some of the questions Kalanithi wrestles with in this profoundly moving, exquisitely observed memoir. 

Age of Anxiety

Amrita Tripathi & Kamna Chhibber

Non-Fiction | Self Help


Through this book we will learn how to distinguish between anxiety as “an attack of the nerves” or something that will come and go, and anxiety as a disorder, which will need treatment, including possibly therapy or medication. Co-authored by writer Amrita Tripathi and clinical psychologist Kamna Chhibber,  Age of Anxiety features a foreword by leading psychiatrist Dr Achal Bhagat, and stories and interviews centered around lived experiences. It also features advice and insight from mental health professionals in India, drawing on their own expertise to share information that can help us move the needle on conversations that make a difference.
