Readers who remember Samuel Butler’s The Way of All Flesh and A.J. Cronin’s Hatter’s Castle with rage will have their revenge at long last in this accurate little book as Lalwani shakes off cuteness and writes with anger and sincerity. For this alone, the book has my vote. When the crash comes, the utter impenetrability of the wall of self-righteousness is beautifully portrayed. Beneath that thin ice of hypocrisy lies—the abyss.

Rumi’s is a story of our culture where children are sent for tuitions after school, where teen suicides peak at exam time. Gifted should be required reading.
