Join us at Elliot Bay Books to hear Sandip Roy read from his novel Don't Let Him Know!

"We are delighted to finally be able to present novelist and journalist Sandip Roy here, as he is over in the U.S. from his Kolkata home base. The recipient of several journalism awards, a longtime commentator on NPR’s Morning Edition, and still with close ties to the Bay Area (where he has also lived), he is here tonight with his internationally-acclaimed debut novel, Don’t Let Him Know (Bloomsbury). “A large-hearted, compassionate novel that treats all its characters - male and female, gay and straight - with affection and sympathy. Sandip Roy illuminates truths about the loneliness of immigration and the perils and comforts of homecoming in this marvelous first novel.” - Thrity Umrigar. “Don’t Let Him Know is a rich, evocative and brilliantly told tale of family, of loyalties, and of love that must stay secret. Sandip Roy has broken new ground in this tale of the modern Indian family. A lovely read.” - Abraham Verghese. "
