Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ram Karan, a corrupt official in New Delhi, lives with his widowed daughter and his little granddaughter. Bumbling, sad, ironic, Ram is also a man corroded by a terrible secret.

Synopsis:

"A powerful debut novel that establishes Sharma as a supreme storyteller."--
