    Description

    The Illicit Happiness of Other People is a contemporary novel set in Madras in 1990.

    Summary of the Book

    When seventeen year old Unni Chacko makes a terrible decision, there is only one clue which can explain why. His anarchist father Ousep finds a comic strip Unni has drawn and begins looking into the extraordinary life of his son. Ousep is a journalist and failed novelist who has few likeable traits. He returns home late after drinking at a pub, disturbing the neighbours as he does so. His wife has had enough of his antics. Having suffered long enough, she plots to kill him. A black comedy revolving around the lives of a failed writer who has found purpose, a young cartoonist’s dangerous representation of truth, the machinations of a brilliant housewife and the innocent love of a 12 year old boy for a beautiful girl, this story will enchant readers and teases them with its mystery and philosophy.
