Overview

The novel The Coffee Track is based on research about my own "roots." My research started on the basis of a few leads that extended back about 150 years. My roots are lost beyond this time, with no verbal or written records. I derived the title from the place where most of my ancestors were living and where coffee is grown on mountain slopes.

The story begins around 1850 and ends in present day. This narrative is about an orthodox Brahmin family of Karnataka, deeply rooted in tradition and Vedic culture, yet resonating with the historical and social changes that are inevitable with the passage of time. The old traditions undergo modifications, adopt new values and expand the meaning of old values with each new generation.

Encompassing five generations, the family adapts to social change, but manages to retain the cherished family values that are both humane and universal.

About the Author: Dr. K. N. Guruprasad grew up in southern India and today is a professor of biological sciences at the university in Indore, India. He is writing his next book.
