I should not be surprised if Hemon wins the Nobel Prize at some point’ Giles Foden In Aleksandar Hemon’s electrifying first book, The Question of Bruno, Jozef Pronek left Sarajevo to visit Chicago in 1992, just in time to watch war break out at home on TV.

John listened to the man's words, looked into his eyes through the remoteness of
the door camera and knew he was in some serious shit. ... And he knew that this

I come from an earlier form of man—that's all. I break out in a neanderthal rage
when I see my woman dragged off by the hair to somebody else's cave. Can't
help it! It's regressive genes, or ingrown hormones, or something.” “Never mind

What emerges is a work that is comic, sentimental, and macabre. The novel is an irreverent exercise at madness and mindless mayhem within the confines of a racy narrative exterior.

Sudipto’s people pull me like string magnets. Difficult to stop reading” - Ujjal Chakraborty, Eminent novelist, and National Awardee film scholar. "Captures an artist’s deepest longings, restlessness, loss, void and confusion. The surreal and the real merge to create a certain delicious madness. The narrative is gorgeous, deeply moving, lyrical and hilarious” - Brahmanand Singh, National awardee and a leading writer. Conventionally, a first novel often suffers the contradictions inherent in sentimentality and piety. It is also branded with the blemish of autobiography. A first-time novelist is eager to pour out his heart and hence his work becomes baroque in its excesses. The author of A Nowhere Man realizes and relishes all that. He is, by your leave, the quintessential zealot, exploring a narrative and expounding a thesis at the same time. What emerges is a work that is comic, sentimental, and macabre. The novel is an irreverent exercise at madness and mindless mayhem within the confines of a racy narrative exterior. There is both conceit and humility, garbed in the guise of Avant-Garde adventure. On the one hand, it tells the simple story of those who loved, made love, lost or won, on the other, it aspires to be a pious elegy of suffering in transit.

After the death of his son, and later his wife, this lonely man is befriended by an Englishwoman in her sixties, whom he takes into his home. The two form a deep and abiding relationship. But the haven they have created for themselves proves to be a fragile one. Racist violence enters their world and Srinivas's life changes irrevocably--as does his dream of England as a country of tolerance and equality.
