"Middle-aged, washed-up environmental journalist Keith Mabbut gets the assignment of a lifetimeÑwrite a tell-all book about a reclusive activist. Mabbut travels from England to India and back again in search of answers, all while dealing with his own family's upheavalÑhis wife's seeing another man; his daughter's involved with a troubled Iranian dissident; he's estranged from his son; and he's harboring romantic feelings for a former co-worker. Narrator Alex Jennings spans continents with a variety of European and Indian accentsÑalways subtle, never caricatures. Jennings expertly puts the story first, a clever and enjoyable meditation on the publishing world, big business, liberal values, and the consequences of discovering "the truth."
