In this poignant and breathtaking debut, one man searches for Meaning in the wake of incomparable tragedy.
Karom Seth should have been in the twin towers on the morning of 9/11 and on the Indian shores in 2004, when the tsunami swept his entire family into the ocean. Whether its a curse or a blessing, Karom cant be sure, but his absence from these disasters has left him with crushing guilt and a belief that fate has singled him out for invincibility.
Karoms affliction consumes everyone around him, from his best friend, Lloyd, to his girlfriend, Gita, who hopes that a trip to India will help him find peace. It is in Delhi that he meets Gitas grandmother, Kamini - a quirky but wise woman with secrets of her own. At first Karom dismisses Kamini, but little does he realise that she will ultimately lead him to the clarity hes been looking for.
Spanning the globe from New York to India, Where Earth Meets Water is a stunning portrait of a quest for human understanding and a wise exploration of grief, survival and love in all its forms.
