The author is truly what makes this book a solid.  He escaped an Australian prison, cutting short his 20 year sentence.  Under an assumed false identity, he begins to layout, in great detail, his new fugitive haven of Bombay.  From the brilliantly constructed sentences, he illuminates the sophistications and insights of an “underground” lifestyle.  After Gregory David Roberts was apprehended and taken back into custody he wrote Shantaram, while serving out the rest of his sentence.
