Jeet Thayil (2012) Narcopolis Penguin Press, New York; 304 pp.; ISBN 978-1-59420330-5. Set in the drug dens of Bombay through the 1970s and 1980s it is a compelling and disturbing novel. Narcopolis opens in Bombay in the late 1970s, as its narrator first arrives from New York to find himself entranced with the city's underworld, in particular an opium den and attached brothel. There are very few works that can find a place next to Burroughs' works – and far few are as firmly rooted in reality as Jeet Thayil's Narcopolis. Jeet Thayil-Narcopolis Jeet Thayil's Narcopolis is unlike anything I've ever read, an intoxicating trip into the opium dens of Old Bombay in the 1970s. Jeet Thayil, Man Booker-shortlisted author of Narcopolis, drew on his own experiences as a 'functional junkie' for his award-winning novel. Narcopolis is not a book to 'enjoy' but the characters are engaging and the world Thayil creates is fascinating. Jamie Delano's Narcopolis Ray Carney Avatar Press, publisher of comics by writers such as Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, and Alan Moore, is set to publish a new miniseries by Jamie Delano in the coming months. Narcopolis Jeet Thayil's Narcopolis made it onto the shortlist for the Booker Prize. Coming out of drug abuse is, at best, providential.
