In this delightful and irreverent tale of growing up in India, Richard Crasta captures with wit and warmth the fetishes of a young Indian for food, sex and all things American. An Earlier, somewhat shorter, version of this book, was published as The Revised Kama Sutra.


Gritty..makes India an everyday place in the Western's mind.
=The New York Times

Exuberant, unabashed picaresque novel .. Indefatigable good humor transcends the personal to stand for the contradictions and struggles of India as a whole. Considerable, irreverent charm.
=Publishers Weekly

A craftsman of letters. Hilarious. Almost read it nonstop.
=Khushwant Singh

A Dickensian tale of a young boy's travails, a comic-sexual odyssey, and a modern Joycean anti-novel. Rabelaisian.
=The Times of India

Delightfully witty..brilliant..unputdownable. A sheer pleasure.
=The Pioneer

An Indian novel with a entertaining romp of a novel, with the Hindu culture and at odds with Western sexual freedom. A startling change from A Suitable Boy, Heat and Dust, or the Man-Eater of Malgudi.
=Publishing News, UK

Delightful .. Unpretentious. Such pleasurable reading.
= Financial Express

Manages from the first page to overturn most of our expectations of what the Indian novel should be .. He gives us a different India, a surprising and refreshing one. The book is clever, funny, lighthearted, readable and sexy, rampant, riotous, Rabelaisian. An utterly original voice.
=John Saddler, Transworld Publishers.
