Although it pains me to admit it, and I can hear my friend Renee laughing at me already, I picked this book up by mistake. The name Mukherjee sounded familiar and as a fan of Indian writers I thought I'd take a chance. As you probably know, but I didn't at the time, this isn't the person who wrote Emperor of all Maladies.

The book was interesting at first. But then quickly devolved into an over-stylized mess of unbelievable characters. It's as if the author, a professor, gave herself the assignment to write a book as if written by Tarintino during the filming of pulp fiction. Merciless killers and sexual predators drift in and out in a jumbled mess.
