The Blue French Horn

Author Name: Soutam Banerjee | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details
Amazon Sales Rank: Ranked #62 in Kindle - Contemporary

A mushy and slushy journey of a mango person, the author narrates his troubled love story in this book and the haunting melancholia wrapped around it. In his final year of college days, when he realizes his lungs have been stuffed with cigarette smoke, his stomach layered with caffeine and his heart engraved with despair, he comes across a girl from the first year one fine day. He experiences a moment of epiphany that she is the one he wants to grow old with, for whom “lifetime in a heartbeat” does not seem a phrase anymore. The anecdote starts with their first call, their first date and their first movie together when she abruptly takes a step back and hibernates herself.

His excruciating voyage spans through a phase of dejection and desperation, a painful severance from Kolkata, fantasies and hallucinations, abstract and fancy realities when, all of a sudden, she walks back into his life like magic woven from a wand. Just when things seem to be rosier and favorable, his ailing heart decides to make the final move, but a revelation from her leaves him totally devastated. A story each and every millennial would relate to, it is an amalgamation of the author’s vivid life experiences, forlorn love and his warped emotions mingled together exquisitely. 

Will he be able to win her back finally or does he have to let her go? Does love really speak for itself?

Soutam Banerjee

Born in the City of Joy in the early 90s, Soutam Banerjee has been working with the country's largest steel producer for the last five years. A nerd with a vibrant smile for the outer world and an ardent admirer of reel-life love stories, his overflowing emotions are confined only to his pillows. Just like an average Indian kid, he spent his growing up years mostly by mugging up his textbooks.

With a run-of-the-mill job with a few plain vanilla aspirations, he was trapped in this vicious circle with everyone pulling him down when he considered diving into the unmapped depths of his life almost a year ago. His curse of overthinking turned out to be a blessing in disguise when he wished to pen down his story to vent out his feelings trapped inside him for a long time.
