"What is life like for India's working poor? Award-winning reporter Aman Sethi answers this question by painting a "darkly comical and imminently readable" (Booklist) picture of one man: charismatic, philosophising, and homeless house painter Mohammed Ashraf. Sethi hangs out with the middle-aged day labourer and a couple of his friends for months, listening to their stories, sharing drinks and joints, and learning about their lives on the streets. Readers who enjoyed journalist Katherine Boo's National Book Award-winning Behind the Beautiful Forevers, about residents of a Mumbai slum, may be interested in Sethi's "moving and irrepressible work of narrative reporting" (Publishers Weekly)."
