This is a love letter to Bombay and its people' * Sunday Express * `A magnificent debut, rich with humour, compassion and insight into what it is like to inhabit the melting pot that is contemporary Bombay, rich in celebration of humanity' * Scotsman * `A wonder of a book. Astonishing' * Amy Tan * `All the elements of great storytelling are here, the mystic transports of Ben Okri with the intimate charm of Arundhati Roy ... enchanting' * Sunday Tribune * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
