They called what they had lost the angels share. They believed that the angels would take a little of their drink and, in exchange, bless the rest of it with a celestial flavour.
Zorawar Chauhan lives two lives. In one, he has the big- money corporate law job he used to dream of. To the young lawyer, the world tenders an endless promise of wealth and privilege. In the other life the one in his head he is haunted by the ghosts of a past from which he is not yet free. He relives his life on the colourful campus of the National Law School, Bangalore the football, the drugs, the falling in and out of love, getting into trouble, learning tough lessons. And above all, he remembers the loss of his friend, the charismatic Sasha Kapur.
Relentlessly honest about being young and ambitious in India, The Angels Share is a dark and funny story of loss and wisdom-come-late.
