Slumdog Millionaire - but for real!
'A beautiful, epic tale of love and perseverance' Booklist 'Often filled with sumptuous prose' Publishers Weekly 'Charming...epic...a journey repeatedly facilitated by the kindness of strangers, but also fraught with danger and pitfalls...[a] 7,000-mile journey across continents, lasting almost five months - all in the name of love.' Daily Mail '[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.' Vaseem Khan, author of The Baby Ganesh Detective Agency series 'A must-read because you won't find any other love story that is so beautiful, touching, and - above all - true' Grazia 'This is a story of human connection that spans continents, class, and race.'
