Farrukh Dhondys stories about his friendships would themselves fill a book. From Charles Sobhraj to V.S. Naipaul, to his first wife Mala Sen, who wrote The Bandit Queen, Dhondys extensive network of acquaintances and relationships became material for his fiction. Bombay Duck, Poona Company and later novels were iconic recreations of early life in Pune and Mumbai, and he went on to be counted among the pioneering writers in English in India. In London, he became a powerful and well-known figure as the creative head of Channel 4 and was responsible for introducing breakaway brown content to English audiences..

Just the thing for Dhondys old-time fans, but also for those interested in reading about a time and people lost to us in real life but close in memory..
