Friend of My Youth by Amit Chaudhuri

Product Description

Book Name: Friend of My Youth

By Amit Chaudhuri

A writer arrives in Bombay(Mumbai) on a book-related visit and finds himself in search of the city he grew up in and barely knows, a city shaken to its core not long ago by the 2008 terrorist strikes—even as he takes for granted his errant local friend, Ramu.

A 6 feet tall Kannadiga and one-time junkie who cannot reconcile himself to modern-day adult life, Ramu is an unlikely hero, Bombay(Mumbai) incarnate; the writer is his mirrored counterpart in an extraordinary narrative about this city by the sea.

Friend of My Youth is at once a concentrated reminiscence and an unexpected exploration woven around a series of visits to a city that was never really home; a commentary on the power of memory and the stubborn interference of childhood with adult life; a paean to the transformative power of friendship by one of our greatest living writers.
