Book Title: No Direction Rome
Desc:

Krantik is cynical, jaded and utterly bored. He's also a paranoid hypochondriac. An Indian working in Rome, he drifts aimlessly through a failed engagement with the assistance of several intoxicants and a short-lived love affair. Krantik's personal revelations and delusions of grandeur expose the hollowness of social mores and the anxieties of a rootless generation. This is a clever, bizarre tour de force, part noir, part philosophical and entirely likable. Kerouac meets Joyce meets Harold and Kumar meets Jonathan Lethem in this wildly inventive love letter to a city that critically acclaimed author Kaushik Barua has lived in and loved for?years
