An Obedient Father

Waiting for the Manhattan Bound A Train at the Nostrand Station, upper level
Nikhil is an English professor in Manhattan and looked very suspicious of the question about his book. He did not offer much. The book was titled An Obedient Father, by Indian author Akhil Sharma, who I learned from both Wikipedia and Amazon is an investment banker as well as a novelist. Sharma is a friend of Nikhil, he said, in answer to why he was reading the novel. He called it a good book.
