No Direction Rome does not wear any badges of Indian Writing in English. It stands on its own, with a post-modernist tone. It's a slow read that grows on you and brings realizations and memories of classic prose, perhaps James Joyce or Jack Kerouac' Earthen Lamp Journal. No Direction Rome 'captures a zeitgeist of the merging of social media with actual society'.
This is a funny novel but the laughter is often edged with a jaded, corrosive cynicism.
