really liked it
bookshelves: funny, travel
Read in January, 2005

bizarre, funny, random, and unbelievably creative- Dr. Daruwalla is a man with no country and no religion, who keeps being drawn back to India to take blood from circus dwarfs. with a few secrets up his sleeve, he participates in the investigation of a transsexual serial killer when the life of his bollywood acting-stepson is threatened. it's about people who don't belong anywhere, for people who don't belong anywhere and like to read about other people who don't belong anywhere.
