Maximum City by Suketu Mehta
Suketu Mehta left Bombay at the age of fourteen.Twenty-one years later he returned to rediscover the city.The result is this stunning,brilliantly illuminating portrait of the megalopolis and its people - a book that is as vast,as diverse, as rich in experience,incident and sensation as the city itself.'
MRP: INR 395
Personal Op: Its a must-read for anyone who has lived in Mumbai and continues to do so,as well as for those who are out-of-towners but would love to know what the real Mumbai is like behind the doors and many layers of faces.....An explosive and hugely revealing book that will force you to think of it even when you have finished reading the last page.. A terrific read.....
