Novel's title

Seems the book's title has a similar tune from Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, written in 1958; which main theme concerns pre- and post-colonial life in late nineteenth century in Nigeria. The title of the novel comes from a line in W. B. Yeats' poem "The Second Coming".


  • Mahbub – Bridge engineer
  • Feroza – Mahbub's wife
  • Archy – Mahbub-turquoise couple's daughter
  • Rowshon – Mahbub's childhood girlfriend
  • Ananya – Mahbub's adult-life female friend (younger than Mahbub)


Through the context of the novel, family events emerge as a result of the emergence of the rural society of Bangladesh, as well as the socio-economic conditions of Bengal.
