Book Description

A unique insight into the mind of theatre legend Habib Tanvir and a moving portrait of an unusual romance.

Legendary theatre activist Habib Tanvir and the artistic young Jill MacDonald met and fell in love in 1955 resulting in the birth of a daughter Anna in 1964. Over many years they wrote letters to each other after he left England to travel across Europe and Russia and later when he returned to India to set up Naya Theatre. Stuffed into a small battered writing case his letters travelled around with Jill for more than fifty years. Here she tells their story relating it to Mukti the eldest of their three grandsons.

Never before published Habib's letters provide a unique insight into the heart and mind of a renowned and multi-talented artist at a seminal period of his life.
