Tin Fish

(2005)
A novel by

 
 
In an elite boarding school in Rajasthan, fifteen-yearold
Barun Ray, aka Brandy, lover of canned fish and
beefsteak, hater of Kipling, worshipper of Michael
Caine and Mick Jagger, meets his soul mates Fish, king swimmer with a domineering,
Muslim-hating father; PT Shoe, a princeling who wants to run away to America and marry
a gora chick; and Porridge, a cereal-loving jester caught between warring churches at
home.
Together, the four boys set about characteristically irreverent, sometimes hilarious
rebellions against their regimental fishbowl existence at a brown-sahib institution in a
turbulent, changing India. But growing up isn t always a breeze, and even as they eat
toothpaste for dessert and make ambitious plans to write their own musical, Get Lost on
the Ganga and All That, they struggle to make sense of incomprehensible adults, Indira
Gandhi, the Emergency, urine therapy, girls, and try, above all, to preserve innocence in
the face of unspeakable tragedy.
Wry, witty and utterly unsentimental, Tin Fish is an exhilarating ride.
