The Nowhere Man is an intricate, perceptive tragedy of alienation centered around the violent racism sparked by Britain's post-war immigration drive. Srinivas, an elderly Brahmin, has been living in south London suburb for 30 years. 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. First published in 1972, The Nowhere Man depicts a London convulsed by fear and bitterness. Truly shocking, The Nowhere Man is as relevant today as when it was first published almost fifty years ago.

How does a decorated Navy SEAL --- DEVGRU or SEAL Team 6 --- "Elite of the Elite" --- go from American hero to serial killer? And when he does, utilizing his uncanny skills, who can stop him? "The Nowhere Man" tells the story of U.S. Lieutenant Commander Kent Taylor, deployed on a mission by his country, only to end up gravely injured, abandoned and incarcerated in a foreign prison camp. Taylor escapes and makes it back to the United States where he learns that, during his absence, his pregnant wife, his young son and his wife's parents have all died in what appears to be an accidental house fire. Tormented by guilt that he was not there to save his family members, overwhelmed by the depth of his grief and anguish, Taylor begins investigating what occurred on that tragic night. What he uncovers shakes him to the core. The deaths were not accidental. His loved ones were murdered as part of a cover-up that includes people in power in the very government for which he has risked his life time and again. With no one to turn to, no one he believes he can trust, no other foreseeable path to justice, Taylor takes it upon himself to avenge their deaths by striking out against those whom he believes are responsible. As the number of his victims increases, a team of law enforcement officers, under the leadership of the F.B.I., finds itself completely baffled by the skills of an assassin so incredibly adept and illusive that the media have dubbed him "The Ghost Assassin." Special Agent Bill Gladding, a highly respected and experienced federal agent, thought he had seen it all before taking the lead in the search for this killer. What he learns about Kent Taylor challenges him in new and unique ways. Neither of these men expected to end up on this path, but one way or another, they are going to see it through to the end. And the end may be the most astonishing thing of all!

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.
