Gregory David Roberts
Escapee Lin and his guide Prabaker dive headfirst into the seedy underworld of contemporary Bombay. Amidst beggars, gangsters, and soldiers of all backgrounds, Lin discovers love and a sense of purpose while running a clinic in a rough slum. But it's only a matter of time before Lin's ties to mafia godfather Khader Khan and the enigmatic, alluring Karla thrust him into a world of violence and betrayal. Based on the author's own experiences, this debut novel is a thrilling, epic exploration of human experience and love for India.
