I have just updated my website, and this is my very first blog. I will be writing here about things that interest or outrage or amuse me, or catch my eye in some way. I hope you all find it interesting. the last 12 months have been very exiting for me and have seen the publication of my first novel, Heaven’s Above. It deals with the varied group of people living in the Mumbai apartment building of that name, and allowed me to draw on my experiences of living there for my first 18 years, and frequent annual visits since the 1980s.
The photo is of me at a book signing with the staff of Kitab Khana, a lovely bookshop off Flora Fountain in the heart of Mumbai.
I also gave well attended talks about my book at two clubs, the Willingdon and the Bombay Gym.
