From the author of the book behind the blockbuster movie Slumdog Millionaire, a brilliant novel about life changing in an instant. Life pivots on a few key moments.

When Ram recounts the story of Father Timothy, he repeatedly refers to himself as an "idiot orphan boy" (pg. 49). Considering how well Father Timothy treats him, why does he describe himself in this manner? Ram has a recurring dream of a tall woman with black hair that obscures her face
