One with a blue cover: The Fourth Passenger

Day 3: Of all blue book covers, my favorite is Mini Nair’s The Fourth Passenger. The cover image is a photograph taken in Mumbai by Suman Chakraborty, the novel’s publisher.

THE FOURTH PASSENGER by Mini Nair

The story of The Fourth Passenger concerns four women in Mumbai whose friendship sustains them through violence and tragedy. A passage in the novel explains the meaning of the title:

The train seats were designed for three passengers to sit comfortably. But, at times—most of the time—the three crammed and adjusted to make place for a grateful fourth passenger, precariously balancing herself on the edge.
