How can you not love a novel with a character saying that? Geoff Wyss' Tiny Clubs does just so while taking us to Bombay, along with twelve opthalmologists who are - mostly - on a charitable mission to operate on cataracts for India's abundant poor. Along the way you'll meet Tasti Kapoor, a famous film star of Bollywood, plus a large cast of supporting characters having the mix of motives you might expect from one of the world's poorest cities. And you'll find out why one of those twelve charitable opthalmologists might not be quite so charitable after all.
