What happens when one attempts to exchange the life one is given for something better? Can we transform the possibilities we are born into? Five characters, in very different circumstances; from a domestic cook in Mumbai, to a vagrant and his dancing bear, to a girl who escapes terror in her home village for a new life in the city; find out the meanings of dislocation and the desire for more. Set in contemporary India and moving between the reality of this world and the shadow of another, this novel of multiple narratives delivers an exploration of the unquenchable human urge to strive for a different life.

Brutal at times, but always moving and very readable.
