Read full description of the books:The book combines elements of memoir, travel writing as well as socio-political analysis of the history and people of Mumbai. Mehta writes as a person who is at one level outsider to this magnificent city and on the other hand is the one who is born here and has lived his childhood in the city then known as Bombay. As a person who comes back with his experience of returning to the city as an adult, as well as a parent and resident. His family left Mumbai for the US in 1977, settling in the Jackson Heights, section of Queens, in New York City.
