Profiles we will treasure: this author’s a “compulsive liar”, a “hard-drinking, icon-bashing rocker”, and the “office stud”. Mukul Kesavan provides less hyperbole in his review of Indrajit Hazra’s The Garden of Earthly Delights: “Hazra does this seedy, low-voltage world well. The story is told by Hiren in the first person and through his insomniac eyes we experience the world in violent, staring detail. There’s a nightmarish quality to the telling which helps blur the boundary between real and dreamt-up worlds, the stated intention of this novel.”
