A beautifully written, multilayered debut novel with a cast of fantastical characters and locales.

This is Kunzru's first novel and it does not really succeed. It tells the story of a boy, born of an Indian mother and British father who is able to "pass" as white. As indicated by the title, he takes on the characteristics of the people with whom he is thrown together. However, these people are often as empty, living as unexamined lives, as is the protaganist.

so well written, you have to slow down and enjoy the words.
You start off wondering whether this is going to be a book of misery but the story quickly turns positive.
