"Very funny," said Kurt Vonnegut of this bestselling Indian novel in which Vijay Prabhu grows up Catholic in a young India and somehow gets hooked onto an American Dream.
At 16, suddenly inspired by Western success books, Bertrand Russell, and Saul Bellow, Vijay overcomes his religious brainwashing and decides to become a successful writer and lover of women. This ambitious plan runs into obstacles when, for the next six years, his cherry proves amazingly resistant to repeated assaults, yielding only at Age 22 to a Nepali doctor of love (a PhD in Love).
The result is A Confederacy of Dunces and David Copperfield meeting Catcher in the Rye and Portnoy's Complaint. This comic novel of childhood, coming of age, of modern Indian manhood, and an American Dream was described as "humorous and manic" by The Independent of London, and as "personifying "the post-Independence Indian male" by an Indian magazine. It has been widely published, and also been adapted for the stage and played to many standing room only audiences.
