An Obedient Father by Akhil Sharma

As an inspector for the Physical Education Department in the Delhi school system, Ram Karan supports his widowed daughter and eight-year-old granddaughter by collecting bribes for a smart-time Congress Party boss. On the eve of Rajiv Gandhis assassination, one reckless act bares the lifetime of violence and sexual shame behind Rams dingy public career and involves him in a farcical, but terrifying, political campaign that could cost him his life.<P>An astonishing character study, a portrait of a family -- and a country -- tormented by the past, An Obedient Father recalls Dostoyevskys guilt-ridden anti-heroes in a debut that is also as fully formed as The Moviegoer.
