From Start To Finish,
With Inventive Narrative Flair.
A Superb Read As Saunders adds
an enlightening footnote to the
annals of history.
Coinman, a junior level office worker in India, has a number of eccentricities. The laughingstock of the office, he finds no relief at home; his wife Imli, an obsessed actress, completely vanishes into each role. When tough bully, Hukum, beautiful enchantress, Tulsi, and the office sage, Ratiram, unite the office to conspire against Coinman, they have no inkling of an apocalypse looming inside the office.
The BookViral Review......
A clever and subversive parody that’s right on target, Coinman: An Untold Conspiracy, is the debut release from author Pawan Mishra. Playing to those who have ever felt stymied by the bureaucratic process of office life, Mishra mercilessly captures the inertia and ennui that’s inherit in most corporate cultures. Drawing his readers in by cleverly connived twists and turns, no individual detail of office life is too absurd to be believed, but together they add up to a stark, humorous lilt on reality. The laughs come quick, Mishra doesn’t allow himself to chug along making plot points because he knows that personality traits are often magnified and lampooned in work settings and it’s his characters that ultimately drive his narrative. Coinman, his affable title character is perfectly pitched, whilst nuances of behaviour are spot on. His characters simply come to life. They’re raunchy, nerdy and a few are utterly despicable and this is where the genius of Mishra’s novel comes to the fore. We may laugh out loud as events unfold, but take the laughter lines away and what you’re left with is cutting and insightful.
Originality is often elusive, yet that’s exactly what Pawan Mishra delivers. Humorous and highly entertaining, Coinman: An Untold Conspiracy proves an absolute gem and is recommended without reservation.
