"A Map of Where I Live" is a humorous and provocative novel of political intrigue and social turmoil in a time when the only sanity is madness. It's a dreamlike adventure story of lives and episodes borne from the innumerable possibilities of "real life" and the imagination. Valur Vishveswaran, an eccentric recluse from India, believes he has discovered and visited Gulliver's Island. Alternating journal entries retell both his fantastic journey and the life of C. Ramakrishnan, a wayward student who becomes involved in the election campaign of a union official. Their bizarre stories intersect and culminate in a surprising case of murder and redemption.
