Product description

Review

"A Free Man is a brilliant capturing of the language and bloodstream of a city. Aman Sethi has made a book that's remarkable in its voice and evocation." (Michael Ondaatje)

"Fascinating, funny and extraordinarily moving." (Lewis Jones Spectator)

"Funny and disturbing." (Arundhati Roy)

"A deeply moving, funny, and brilliantly written account from one of India's most original new voices." (Katherine Boo, author of 'Behind the Beautiful Forevers')

"A Free Man is a beautiful work of journalism, sympathetic and graceful. The author follows, and progressively befriends, a homeless day laborer in Delhi. What starts as classic ethnography becomes a gripping story, and ends as a homage to a lost friend." (Esther Duflo, author of 'Poor Economics')

Book Description

A bestseller in India, this brilliant account of the life of an itinerant Delhi labourer marks the debut of a major new writer
