Corridor


Corridor: a Graphic Novel by Sarnath Banerjee. Its been peeking out of the library book shelves for a long time now. Finally i picked it up yesterday. As part of my ongoing allergy towards big novels i have embraced the small short story types. Read a translation of Goan literature and now this.

In the heart of Lutyens’ Delhi sits Jehangir Rangoonwalla, enlightened dispenser of tea, wisdom and second-hand books. Among his customers are Brighu, a postmodern Ibn Batuta looking for obscure collectibles and a love life; Digital Dutta who lives mostly in his head, torn between Karl Marx and an H-1B visa; and the newly-married Shintu, looking for the ultimate aphrodisiac in the seedy by-lanes of old Delhi. Played out in the corridors of Connaught Place and Calcutta, the story captures the alienation and fragmented reality of urban life through an imaginative alchemy of text and image.

-extracted from Wikipedia.

I loved it but then graphic novels marries my two favorite interests 🙂  what more can i ask.
hope i get to read his second novel. BarnOwl’s wondrous Capers.
