Brief Praise for this Book


Exuberant, unabashed picaresque novel... indefatigable good humor transcends the personal to stand for the contradictions and struggles of India as a whole. Considerable, irreverent charm.” — Publishers Weekly


I salute you as a full-fledged colleague. Yes, I am reading you and finding you very funny!”

Kurt Vonnegut

An Indian novel with a difference . . . an entertaining romp A startling change from A Suitable Boy, Heat and Dust, or The Maneater of Malgudi.”

Tim Manderson’s Special Selection, Publishing News, U.K


A verbal craftsman . . . hilarious.”

Time Out, London


"Should be a recognized classic. An exuberant Catcher in the Rye, a South Indian Confederacy of Dunces. Uplifting and powerful."
