Let Me Tell You about Quinta
About the Book
‘Houses are like people, you live in them and they look beautiful; you neglect them and they wither and slump.’ When Queirozito wins the protracted litigation against relatives who had laid claim to his 200-year-old ancestral home, Quinta, he gets a new lease of life. He invites his grandson Suraj from the US to take a look at the half-slumping villa for possible repairs. When Suraj’s Russian-American wife California arrives instead, Queirozito faces yet another invasion on his beloved home and decides to fight back once again only to stumble upon some bitter, dark family secrets. In Let Me Tell You about Quinta, Savia Viegas weaves an intricate tale of the small, secluded and fading world of the elite Viegas family which, in many ways, reflects contemporary Goan society.
