Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard (Large Print) (Isis)by Kiran Desai
Synopses & Reviews
Sampath Chawla is born into a family slightly off kilter, to a mother not quite like her neighbors, in a town not quite like other towns. After years of failure at school, failure at work, it does not seem as if Sampath is going to amount to much.<P>Then Sampath climbs up a guava tree in search of a life of peaceful contemplation — and becomes famous as a hermit.<P>Written with rich humor and an eye for the eccentric, this is a magical tale of a world gone slightly mad.
