Summary "John Lock has fled the quiet desperation of his life in England - decades wasted in a meaningless job, a marriage foundering in the wake of loss, and a terrible secret he cannot bear to share with his wife - and has come to India to meet his destiny. John has come to offer his help to Bibhuti Nayak, who has learned to conquer pain, a world record-breaker who specializes in feats of extreme endurance and ill-advised masochism. John is welcomed into Bibhuti's family and into the color and chaos of Mumbai, where he encounters Ping-Pong-playing monks, a fearless seven-year-old martial arts warrior, and an old man who longs for the monsoon to wash him away. As he and Bibhuti take their leap of faith together, John sets out to rewrite a brave end to a life poorly lived."--Adapted from dust flap
