Literature & Fiction

What is it about Heaven's Above that makes it different from other apartment buildings in Mumbai? Something happened here a very long time ago - an ancient tragedy - that ripples into present lives in unexpected ways.

We meet Boman, a pedantic and lovelorn Parsi. Idris, a successful photographer whose happiness is about to be shattered. Ashwini, a famous actress who carries the secret regret of a lost love. Attempted murder, illegal money, infidelity, kidnapping, abuse, love and bereavement - all these and more find their paths entwined, as a holy man gathers together the threads of their lives and by so doing frees himself.

By turns outrageous, amusing and poignant, Heaven's Above offers an intimate and affectionate view of these everyday inhabitants of Mumbai.
