BOOKS OF THE WEEK - 11Th September 2015

Family Life
by : Akhil Sharma
About the Book
It is the late 1970s. India has been wrenched by the Emergency. Like countless Indian children, Ajay and Birju are taken by their parents to America so they can have a better life. In New York, their flat is tiny, the students at their school racist. Like all striving Asian children, Ajay and Birju forge ahead, pushed on by their ambitious parents. But then everything changes. Birju has an accident that leaves him brain-damaged, and the world around Ajay collapses. His father begins to drink, his mother takes to prayer and it is Ajay who must now bear all the guilty weight of their love. Dark, sardonic and written with biting wit and observation, Family Life is a superb portrait of one dysfunctional family that speaks to all families.
