An Obedient Father Cover

 

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. Taking the reader down into a world of feuding families and politics, An Obedient Father is a work of rare sensibilities that presents a character as formulated, funny, and morally ambiguous as any of Dostoevsky’s antiheroes.

Synopsis:

“A powerful debut novel that establishes Sharma as a supreme storyteller.”—Philadelphia Inquirer
