Description

Grand in scope, spare in execution, and lush in language, 26 Knots is a fable-like tale of love, obsession, and everything in between. Araceli loves Adrien. Adrien loves Pénélope. Pénélope marries Gabriel, who is tormented by the search for the father he never knew. Set in Montreal, but spiralling out across Canada, Bindu Suresh’s debut novel deftly reveals the devastating consequences of betrayal and commitment, of grief and hope.

Editorial Reviews

"Shakespearean in its execution, 26 Knots leaves you feeling the echoes of heartbreak and loneliness, long after you finish the last page."—THIS Magazine


"A propulsive, taut and sultry debut, 26 Knots is a lightspeed Romeo and Juliet, a billet doux to Montreal. Bindu Suresh writes with the shine and force of a guillotine carrying us swiftly through the entanglements of love."––Claudia Dey, author of Heartbreaker

— Claudia Dey

To call this novel a page-turner is an understatement... Suresh’s prose is sumptuous and lyrical.—Montreal Review of Books


"A collection of connected tales set in Montreal, Canada, Bindu Suresh's 26 Knots is a buzzy, new novel-in-stories that you won't want to miss out on reading."—Bustle


One of the most striking Canadian literary debuts of the year.—Montreal Gazette
