Refreshingly Foreign

Despite some amateur fumbling, a slick debut set in Hungary

FOR a novel by an Indian, this book is unique. Set in communist Budapest, it doesn't have a word about India or an Indian in it. Lovely. About time we got out of our imaginative ghettos. Let foreigners talk of the corpse-littered Ganges and the dung in our streets. Let the Indian writer move to other pastures.
