‘A moving and confident novel about the preciousness of life’ Nikesh Shukla 

‘Djinn Patrol is storytelling at its best’ Anne Enright 


Award-winning journalist Deepa Anappara is coming to Corbridge to discuss her extraordinary and highly praised debut novel, Djinn Patrol on the Purple Line.

A vivid and heartbreaking novel set in a fictional North Indian city, Djinn Patrol explores the sinister disappearances of local children and follows nine-year-old Jai: an aspiring detective and reality police show aficionado, as we venture through the sprawling slums and the most dangerous parts of the city in an attempt to find his missing friends.

A charming and warm detective drama that confronts the real-life inequalities of a modern India and the vulnerabilities of it’s children; we can’t wait to welcome Deepa to tell us all about it!

Join us, and Deepa Anappara in conversation with author Sarah Shaffi, on Tuesday 18th February, 
at The Chapel, Corbridge, for book chat, sweet treats and more!

Doors will be open from 6.30pm for a 7.00pm start. Tickets are available now at £5 which includes a drink on arrival.
