Paperback Raita by William Rhode

Paperback Raita

William Rhode

Although I found it difficult to have any sympathy or empathy with Josh, the book gave an interesting portrayal of the underbelly of Indian sub-culture.

Extract

Not really. Not any more. Because the really good part is that I feel much, much better. Somewhere along the line, somewhere between fantasy and reality, I've found a space where I'm comfortable. The bad dreams have stopped. I don't feel so lost. I don’t feel so confused. I finally know what it is I'd like to do with my life. I'd like to write. And it won't necessarily be for the money.
