At the age of sixty-six, Xavier, who has been living in New York, is getting ready to return to the land of his birth to stage one final show of his work accompanied by a mad bacchanal. As we accompany Xavier and his girlfriend Goody on their unsteady, and frequently sidetracked, journey from New York to New Delhi, the venue of the final show, we meet a host of memorable characters-journalists, conmen, alcoholics, addicts, artists, poets, whores, society ladies, thugs—and are also given unforgettable and sometimes unbearable insights into love, madness, poetry, sex, painting, saints, death, God and the savagery that fuels all great art.
The debauched, the gifted and their hangers-on feature in this elegiac story about the rackety lives of the Bombay poets.
