AN OBEDIENT FATHER
by Akhil Sharma
published by Faber and Faber

*

Ram Karan, a corrupt official in the Delhi school system, lives in one of the city's slums with his widowed daughter and his eight-year-old granddaughter. Bumbling, contradictory, sad, Ram is a man corroded by a guilty secret. An Obedient Father takes the reader to an India that is both far away and real--into the mind of a character as tormented, funny, and ambiguous as one of Dostoevsky's anti-heroes.
