Cover of Dreams in Prussian Blue by Paritosh Uttam

Dreams in Prussian Blue, published by Penguin India as one of its Metro Reads series in January 2010, is my first published novel.

It is the story of a young unmarried Mumbai couple Michael and Naina, who rush into a relationship, impatient to begin the journey of their life together. When Michael goes blind in an accident, it not only wrecks his ambitious dreams of making it big as an artist, but also forces both to question the choices they have made.

I hope you will find Dreams in Prussian Blue a breezy, engaging read, as well as a satisfying literary experience.

You can purchase the book online on stores like Amazon.in and Flipkart. A Kindle e-book version is also available.Malayalam film - Artist

Dreams in Prussian Blue has been adapted into an award-winning Malayalam film titled Artist by acclaimed director Shyamaprasad, and was released in August 2013.
