Elsa's Joint and Some Goan Characters
Set in the quintessentially Portuguese ambience of Panjim, Goa, Elsa's Joint is a delightful novel about the petty troubles and travails that mark the lives of its residents-of course, for them, they are neither petty nor small, but major earth-shattering events. Written in a witty, humorous vein, Elsa's Joint weaves a lovely tapestry of the life in a small town.
