Show Business

Show Business


Critically ill, Bollywood superstar Ashok Banjara lies suspended between life and death in a Bombay hospital, a prisoner of the technicolour film that plays inside his head. As if for the first time, he watches himself rise to the heights of the film world, and encounters again all the people he met and used along the way. Show Business is many books rolled into one-a wonderfully funny tale about the romance and folly of cinema, a novel on an epic scale of ambition, greed, love, deception and death. It is a fable for our time, which teaches us that we live in a world where illusion is the only reality and nothing is what it seems.
