Description

What happens when the beautiful, charming and ambitious Eliza Rodricks of Nairobi comes to study tailoring in Margao and falls in love with the local bhatkar? She doesn’t think twice before giving away her heart and body to the arrogant seducer Jorge Pacheco. This is a novel with an unusual theme that will leave readers spellbound and heartbroken… It’s a story that takes a searing look at the hypocritical and traditionally caste-bound society of seemingly modern Goa.

The Tailor’s Daughter is the Canada-based novelist’s third novel. His previous two novels Pennance and Blood & Nemesis received critical praise abroad and in India. The author, born and bred in Goa during Portuguese colonial times, has an unerring memory of life in Goa before it was liberated in 1961.
