Select Preferred Format

In April 2006 Robin ‘Einstein’ Varghese; a stupendously naïve but academically gifted young man (he was ranked 41st in his class); graduates from one of India’s best business schools with a Day-Zero job at the Mumbai office of Dufresne Partners, a mediocre mid-market management consulting firm largely run by complete morons. Varghese finds that he fits into the culture remarkably well. Or does he? Through a stunning series of blunders, mishaps and inadvertent errors, Robin begins to make his superiors rue the day they were driven by desperation into hiring him.With things going spectacularly wrong in his professional and personal life, will Robin manage to achieve his short-term goal of being promoted to Associate in under a year? Will love conquer all and will Gouri walk with him through Dadar Department Stores with her hand in the rear pocket of his jeans? Dork: The Incredible Adventures of Robin ‘Einstein’ Varghese is for all of those who’ve ever sat depressed in cubicles…and wanted to kill themselves with office stationery. Especially that letter opener thing. Join Robin as he navigates his first insane year at Dufresne Partners in this first volume of the Dork trilogy. Praise for the book: ‘A stunning new voice in Indian literature! In Dork Vadukut has written the book I’ve always wanted to write’ – William Dalrymple’s biggest fan’s youngest sister. ‘I love this book. I love its voice. I love the author. He’s like a delicate crème brulee’ – Padma Laxmi’s ex-husband’s hairdresser. ‘I read this book and instantly knew that Robin Varghese is the role of a lifetime. Inshallah I will be a part of the movie when it’s made’- Shah Rukh Khan’s dentist’s accountant.
