Overview Lavlandet
The lowlands is another name for the Indian subcontinent – as opposed to the highlands, the Himalayas, which rise up in a cultural collision behind them. In the lowlands they are flooded – figuratively and literally. Wera Sæther has travelled and lived in India for many years. This is a novel, but it is also Wera Sæther's story. Wera Sæther's story of travelling and living in India. What do you really know about India? About its more than a billion people? What do you know about the Indian subcontinent? About the lowlands, not the mountains, not Kashmir and drugs and war, but the lowlands, where there is flooding? This is a fascinating tale of a continent and a woman who is anything but ordinary.
