Grannies, Groins, and Growing Up

The experiences in Farrukh Dhondy’s childhood that formed the man who became a best selling novelist, translator, commissioning editor, historian and playwright are worked into a collection of sonnets that are fun, charming, full of scabrous humour, exciting and above all a real treat to read and savour.

Those who already know Farrukh’s writing won’t be at all surprised at the surprising details, the wicked insights into human nature and the panorama of characters who peopled his early life in India – and they will be delighted at the way his use of the sonnet is so rich and so transparent. This book is one of a kind – reflecting Farrukh’s joyful attitude to life and his breadth of understanding.
