Description
Every morning in Sadar Bazaar, one of the oldest markets in Delhi, men gather looking for work in the building trade. For five years, Aman Sethi visited them and talked about their lives, and in particular that of itinerant house-painter Mohammed Ashraf. But Ashraf is not a typical laborer—he studied biology in college, and since then has learned how to repair TV sets, cut suits, and slice chicken. He's lived all over India, but wound up in Delhi, the second most populous city in the country. The morning will bring hangovers, whisky breakfasts, and possibly answers to the lingering questions that haunt Ashraf. How did he get here? Why is he the way he is? And is there a way back home? Wry, humorous and insightful, this is a fascinating and unforgettable portrait.

"A Free Man is a brilliant capturing of the language and bloodstream of a city. Aman Sethi has made a book that's remarkable in its voice and evocation."—Michael Ondaatje
