Shantaram

Abacus

'A literary masterpiece . . . at once erudite and intimate, reflective and funny . . . it has the grit and pace of a thriller' Daily Telegraph

A novel of high adventure, great storytelling and moral purpose, based on an extraordinary true story of eight years in the Bombay underworld.

'In the early 80s, Gregory David Roberts, an armed robber and heroin addict, escaped from an Australian prison to India, where he lived in a Bombay slum. There, he established a free health clinic and also joined the mafia, working as a money launderer, forger and street soldier. He found time to learn Hindi and Marathi, fall in love, and spend time being worked over in an Indian jail. Then, in case anyone thought he was slacking, he acted in Bollywood and fought with the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan . . . Amazingly, Roberts wrote Shantaram three times after prison guards trashed the first two versions. It's a profound tribute to his willpower . . . At once a high-kicking, eye-gouging adventure, a love saga and a savage yet tenderly lyrical fugitive vision.' Time Out

Portrait
Gregory David Roberts wurde 1952 in Melbourne, Australien, geboren. Während seiner Studienjahre beging er mehrere bewaffnete Raubüberfälle und wurde zu einer 19-jährigen Haftstrafe in einem Hochsicherheitsgefängnis verurteilt. Nach seiner spektakulären Flucht ließ sich Gregory David Roberts in Bombay nieder. Dort gründete er unter anderem seine eigene Castingagentur für Bollywood-Filmproduktionen und eine Rockband. Seine Kontakte zur lokalen Mafia führten schließlich zu seiner Festnahme in Frankfurt. Gregory David Roberts wurde nach Australien zurückgeschickt, wo er weitere sechs Jahre im Gefängnis verbrachte, zwei davon in Einzelhaft. In dieser Zeit begann er seine Arbeit an seinem ersten Roman Shantaram, der mittlerweile zu einem weltweiten sensationellen Erfolg avanciert ist. Heute lebt Gregory David Roberts mit seiner Familie in Genf.

Anybody who wants to know more about life itsself, has to read this book. It's always amazing when you see what people can get up to in their lifetime. And it's even more remarkable when they write a book about it, that is so riveting and unputdownable as this one. "Shantaram" is like a heart stopping rollercoaster full of humanity and love for all mankind. If you havn't already read it, do so. It's worth it.

That shows you things you don't even imagine on this planet? Well this is the right choice! This book takes you to India but unlike other novels you can actually feel, smell and learn the philosophy in India. A book that makes you laugh and cry the same time but also makes you think about a thing or two. I really enjoyed this masterpiece!
