Maximum City: Bombay Lost and Found (2004)
by Suketu Mehta
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375703403, Paperback)A native of Bombay, Suketu Mehta gives us an insider’s view of this stunning metropolis. He approaches the city from unexpected angles, taking us into the criminal underworld of rival Muslim and Hindu gangs; following the life of a bar dancer raised amid poverty and abuse; opening the door into the inner sanctums of Bollywood; and delving into the stories of the countless villagers who come in search of a better life and end up living on the sidewalks.

Bombay's story is told through the lives, often desperately near the edge, of some of the people who live there. The complex texture of these extraordinary tales is threaded together by Suketu Metha's own history of growing up in Bombay and returning to live there after a 21 year absence.
