Thursday the 2nd of February is the day for release of the English language edition of my book about PK Mahanandia who cycled from India to Sweden. The Indian author Vaseem Khan, who have written the popular The Baby Ganesh Detective Agency series, has read it and is enthusiastic:
”[This] is one of those genuinely illuminating stories that come along once in a while. At heart an against-all-odds love story, this wonderful book does so much to explain why Indian society is the way it is. The story of PK, growing up an ‘untouchable’ at a time when such labels should have been abolished, is touching, harrowing and ultimately enlightening. The writing is humorous and tender, the cast of characters joyous, and best of all – it’s all true.”
This we will celebrate with a book launch in Waterstone’s bookshop at 82 Gower Street in central London (close to British Museum) at 6.30 PM Monday the 13th of February. Please come and meet me, PK, Lotta and their grown up children Karl Siddhartha and Emelie.
See you in London!
