APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Some people are just a little too clever for their own good. Professor Chandra is definitely one of them. With a Nobel Prize just/i> within his grasp, it would appear he’s got everything figured out, but a life-altering bicycle accident forces Chandra to rethink everything. Thought-provoking, tender and uplifting, his journey of self-discovery inspired us to reject status and embrace family and love with open arms. British novelist Rajeev Balasubramanyam has a real gift for cheerful storytelling; we adored his characters—imperfections and all.

Yes, read this book!
If you are wondering if you should read this book the answer is yes. I read this on a recommendation of another author who's books I love. I found it funny, uncomfortable and familiar. The family dynamic in the book was very familiar maybe being South Asian it was easier to understand that the characters were plausible. I enjoyed it immensely.
