Delightful stories about love, lust, friendship, betrayal and the ways of the heart An ageing and unsuccessful poet whose life and literary views have been overtaken by rap artists, celebrity-hungry American students, Indian archaeologists and other hustlers. His patient and abandoned wife who sets out on her voyage of discovery. London’s Indian gigolos and their American victims or predators. A small-town mathematics-teacher-turned-cheese-impresario. An Englishman – waiting for a transplant that would enable him to start a family-exchanging desperate emails with a prospective donor’s relative. As these disparate elements come together in a delightful mix, we encounter the tragedy – of good intentions, in monumental proportions. Relationships fold and unfold as faith and the seventh commandment are tested and broken in these enjoyable stories.
