Description

A literary masterpiece . . . at once erudite and intimate, reflective and funny . . . it has the grit and pace of a thriller’ Daily Telegraph A novel of high adventure, great storytelling, and moral purpose, based on an extraordinary true story of eight years in the Bombay underworld. ‘In the early 80s, Gregory David Roberts, an armed robber and heroin addict, escaped from an Australian prison to India, where he lived in a Bombay slum. There, he established a free health clinic and also joined the mafia, working as a money launderer, forger, and street soldier. He found time to learn Hindi and Marathi, fall in love, and spend time being worked over in an Indian jail. Then, in case anyone thought he was slacking, he acted in Bollywood and fought with the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan . . . Amazingly, Roberts wrote Shantaram three times after prison guards trashed the first two versions. It’s a profound tribute to his willpower . . . At once a high-kicking, eye-gouging adventure, a love saga, and a savage yet tenderly lyrical fugitive vision.’ Time Out
