A book for our times
Reviewed in India on 19 August 2020
The best way to define this book would be to call it contemporary. It talks about so many things of the here and the now, in the finely written (and translated) prose of Murugan. This novel works on so many levels - as a satire on our present society and education system; as the story of a man blundering around in a world where he is a misfit and a father-son story as well. The story flows easily from one chapter to another. The book is an easy and engaging read that will make you glad you read it.
