When Ashwin, a wealthy Delhi boy, meets Lallan, a struggling student from Patna looking to make his fortune, their friendship, with their mutual love for the almond-eyed Mallika, seems to transcend the fault lines of class and privilege.

But one night at a party, a fateful incident leads their worlds to unravel with consequences that change both their lives forever and expose the deep turmoil inherent in the frenetic energy of the new, aspiring India.

An audacious debut, Fire Under Ash marks the arrival of Indian fictions latest star, who takes a coruscating look at Delhis beauty and brutality, writing the city as weve never read it before.
