The Book of Answers
by C Y Gopinath
Patros' bland life is shattered when he inherits a book with answers to the world's problems. He sells it off — but it reappears in the hands of a politician and a godman, who pass draconian laws citing the book as their divine source. As his country plunges into chaos, Patros emerges as a reluctant hero. A sharp satire about how the corrupt the powerful can manipulate an unreflective society.
