Please correct my query to read as: "Is it a new one after Ek Saal Baad?", for you had sent me the book titled 'Ek Saal Baad'.which, I recall,  was equally absorbing. I look forward to reading your English novel, which I am sure will provide yet another opportunity of savouring the delights of good reading.
