Now that’s a title.
A charmingly exuberant comic debut from an exciting new literary voice, this “quirky, hilarious, elegantly written farce” (The Daily Telegraph) is the globetrotting story of a trickster from rural India and his adventure of a lifetime.
When the fakir—a professional con artist—arrives in Paris, he has just one goal: to get to Ikea. Armed with only a counterfeit hundred-euro note in the pocket of his silk trousers, he is confident that he has all he needs to thrive.
But his plan goes horribly awry when he hides inside a wardrobe at the iconic Swedish retailer—the first in a series of accidents that will send him on a whirlwind tour across Europe.
