Rusty Comes Home

 
9780143333401: Rusty Comes Home

Rusty Comes Home chronicles Rusty s exploits after his return from London, as he explores Delhi, Dehra and the small, dusty town of Shahganj before settling down in Mussoorie, making his living as a writer, revelling in his beloved hills.

This collection contains some captivating stories about Rusty s friends and fleeting acquaintances, about human nature and the supernatural. He meets a motley bunch of people including Suresh, a disabled child with whom Rusty strikes up a close bond, Uncle Bill, who makes it his habit to poison people with arsenic, and the incredible Jimmy, a jinn who can extend his arms at will to infinite lengths.

Full of charming and idiosyncratic characters, these stories of love, loss and adventure will appeal to readers of all ages.

He received the Sahitya Akademi Award for English writing in India in 1993, the Padma Shri in 1999, and the Delhi government s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.
