Summary
"Aman Sethi, a young Indian journalist, has been hailed as both a first-rate reporter and a superb writer. In an astonishing debut, he delivers a moving portrait of a man most people would scarcely notice, let alone encounter. Mohammad, a wry and worldly man, studied biology, became a butcher, a tailer, and an electrician's assistant; now he is a poor, homeless, day laborer in the heart of old Delhi. How did he end up this way? A Free Man is the story of Sethi's attempt to find out. Sethi brings Mohammad and his friends vividly to life as he chronicles Mohammad's adventures and misfortunes . . . Through it all is the wry voice of Mohammad himself, forever amused by Sethi's interest in his life."--dust cover
