From the cover: “This is a novel about two things: a family, and a village. The village, Chevathar, is set on the banks of India’s southernmost river, at the point where it flows into the Gulf of Mannar. It’s an idyllic setting, typical of villages on the Coromandel Coast. There are temples, a fort, a church (for, in this part of South India, many of the villagers are Christian), the big house where the Dorai family live, a beach, and groves of mango trees — the blue mangoes of the title.
