STUCK!After 9/11, Kabir comes back to his hometown of Kolkata from the US, but finds himself unable to come to terms with his dysfunctional family, headed by his authoritarian father. Questions of custom and tradition haunt the young man who seeks to mould himself anew, but nothing seems to work — not his new marriage, not his attempts at business — and he finally follows his cousin Veer to Mumbai only to confront tragedy and the shattering consequences ofa long-kept secret. Told with passion, verve and humour, Stuck! examines cultural norms and expectations among the Punjabi-Sikh community of Kolkata, and asks searching questions of just who and what make us who and what we are. This, in award-winning novelist, Kunal Basu’s words, is "A picaresque journey, seething with raw energy."
