Poignant, witty, melancholic and intense, this is the best of four decades of prose from one of India's masters of the written word. The worst thing about being a human being is being a human being. 'I wish I was bird', as the railway clerk in Nissim Ezekiel's poem says. But if I were, the worst thing about being a bird would be being a bird. Welcome to the world of Adil Jussawalla, poet, columnist, critic. The essays and entertainments collected in this volume take in everything from language to poetry, from ethics to model aero planes, from death and addiction to travel and alienation. In these pages, you will meet poets, novelists, construction labourers, gamblers and, most startlingly, Jussawalla himself as a boy who lost himself at the movies as the acned adolescent on a ship watching a storm at sea as the flaneur of South Mumbai. Poignant, witty, melancholic and intense, this is the best of four decades of prose from one of India's masters of the written word. Book Feature: These essays provide insightful commentary on the cultural shifts and political changes over the past forty years. Written by one of the masters of the written word, Adil Jussawalla. Selected and edited by award-winning author Jerry Pinto.
