Sacred Games (Harper Collins)

Gangsters, detectives, Bollywood movie stars--Chandra mobilizes the machinery of a thriller in order to reveal Bombay at its most various. Fascinating then, to hear him describe his novel as a mandala of perceptions in which characters reflect the worlds they move through, the plot enacting the clash between different beliefs about reality.
