The To-Let House

Daisy Hasan Set in the politically restive city of Shillong in North East India, The To-Let House is a contemporary coming-of-age story that gives a moving insight into a dark, unsettling world. Di, Addy, Kulay and Clemmie’s tormented passage through adolescence is framed by the region’s own violent search for identity, resulting in a vividly portrayed narrative that gently blurs the division between the personal and the political.
