Bombay Bhel by Ken Doyle Ken Doyle
Genre: Literary fiction (short story collection)
Page Count: 188

Book Description:
A schoolboy's loyalty to a street vendor is tested when the vendor disappears without notice. A grandmother prepares to begin a new chapter in her life. Bombay's tangled web of bureaucracy threatens the livelihood of an ex-serviceman.

Like the city's ubiquitous snack food, Bombay Bhel blends a variety of ingredients to serve up glimpses of life among the Goan and Anglo-Indian communities--minorities in one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities. The interlinked stories are set in the late twentieth century, before a wave of anticolonialism crested across India and resulted in the city's rechristening. Each story in this debut collection offers a taste of the rhythm and verve of Bombay life.

Alex Johnston (alexjohnston) | 4 comments Hi Ken,

Not sure how appropriate it is for fellow writers to volunteer to review, but I'd actually spotted the book through your Absolute Write profile the other day (and I actually ended up here thanks to your recommendation there). Literary fiction with an India connection is right up my street, so if your happy, I'd love to review the book. PDF
