THE LIVES, LOVES, AND LAUGHS OF THREE YOUNG NRIs LIVING IN MANHATTAN
Author: Madhuri Iyer
Q. What happens when three ambitious, high-achieving, 20-something Mumbaikars become New Yorkers?
Zipping through life’s ups and downs like a high-speed elevator during rush hour, buddies Shri, Shanks, and Neel hold on to each other, and their sanity, with a bro-hood bonding that chipkos them together, fevicol se.
Neel’s the driven hedge fund guy, with a weakness for scotch and women. Tam Brahm Shanks, a techie, falls for the wrong girl. Good Son Shri, a banker, holds a secret he means to take to his grave. Their intertwined lives buzz with high-voltage drama — explosive secrets, super-charged romances, and a-fuse-a-minute meltdowns.
There’s alcohol-fueled passion, Devdas style. Inter-racial hook-ups. Even a fake affair, because money can’t buy the real thing. When their skyscraper-sized dreams are tested, this desified saga of friends in Manhattan is like the city’s rapid transit express subway line. You won’t want any stops in between.
From Mumbai to Manhattan, this book is a journey of three guys and their bromance!
This book seems like something straight off F.R.I.E.N.D.S sitcom minus the central perk…but i’m not the one to complain…who does not want a little bit of F.R.I.E.N.D.S nostalgia now and then?
The story starts with three quintessential Mumbaikars trying to make it in Manhattan..leading busy but uncomplicated lives. Their lives suddenly take a turn with the entry of rich heiress Shefali, and along with her trails the whole entourage of people which leads to a whole lot of masala being added to their lives!
This book is not for intellectual simulation, but for general light breezy read.
Best enjoyed with a cup of tea and a beautiful day 😉
