Vishnu, the odd-job man in a Bombay apartment block, lies dying on the staircase landing. Around him the lives of the apartment dwellers unfold - the warring housewives on the first floor, the lovesick teenagers on the second, and the widower, alone and quietly grieving at the top of the building. In a fevered state Vishnu looks back on his love affair with the seductive Padmini and comedy becomes tragedy as his life draws to a close. (blurb)

Received as a RABCK from loveamystery; thank you! I can't remember who recommended this book to me, but as they described it I thought it was something I must include on my wishlist. And I'm delighted to see that the book started it's journey in Germany!

I enjoyed this book quite a bit. I loved the prose, it was very lyrical. I also loved the integration of mythology and Bollywood, very fun. My favourite story was that of Vinod and Sheetal; I'm a sucker for love stories.
