A novel of astonishing wit and insight that examines the great cultural divide between the East and the West
Through the stories of Ali and Mr. XX, based in the cities of London and Bombay this novel explodes many myths and conjures new ones. It reveals an unexpected world, a seething sub-culture of actors and shop-keepers, politicians and farmers, gunrunners and bearded boys, as it crosses the divide that separate the chaotic subcontinent from the consciousness of the West.
