From the Hardcover edition. He was born in India and attended Columbia and Oxford universities. A Best Book of the Year: Vain, shrewd and stubborn, [Masterji] is one inn the most delightfully contradictory characters to appear in recent fiction. This funny and poignant story is multidimensional, layered with many engaging stories and characters.

A funny yet deeply melancholic work, Last Man in Tower is a brilliant, and remarkably mature, second novel.
