Max­i­mum City: Bom­bay Lost And Found (BOOK)

DNA (Daily News & Analysis) Mumbai Edition - - FRONT PAGE -

book is Suketu Me­hta’s au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal take on the city of Mum­bai. Writ­ten through many in­ter­link­ing ac­counts, the au­thor suc­ceeds in bring­ing out the hor­rors and won­ders of liv­ing in the city. Me­hta, who was born and brought up in Mum­bai and later mi­grated to the US , re­turned only to find it changed and af­fected by po­lit­i­cal and so­cial events like the 1992 ri­ots, the bur­geon­ing slums and the Bom­bay Rent Act and its im­pli­ca­tions. The au­thor has taken care not to leave out the Mum­bai Po­lice, the un­der­world and Bol­ly­wood from the nar­ra­tive.
