After the best-selling Keep off the Grass (which I had written about it an earlier post), Karan Bajaj is back with his second novel.
Johnny Gone Down is about an Ivy League Scholar who had a bright future at NASA ahead of him but things seem to take a dramatic turn from an innocent vacation. The protagonist then partakes a series of adventures and the synopsis as given on the website leaves the casual interested reader like me, a tad confounded about what eventually would happen to Johnny. I’m waiting to pick this one up!
I was glad to know that Harper Collins is printing 50,000 copies of the thriller in the first print run – which is quite a number by any standards – and especially by Indian publishing standards. (Link to the relevant Hindustan Times article – Will IIM Alumni’s novel rewrite publishing rules in India?)
Here’s to a fellow BIT Mesra and IIM Alum – way to go, Karan – I’m waiting to get my hands on this one! 🙂
