Abstract

Love of My Life, a novel set in the Indian city of Pune, tells the story of a young boy as he grows into a man, and his attempt to overcome the social structures that surround him in order to achieve happiness and meaning. Throughout the novel, he encounters various people and events that shape his understanding of his world – including an overbearing mother, an unrequited love, and the temptation of evil – until he ultimately finds his purpose, his love, and what it means to be alive. The novel was written while living in Pune, and was edited the following year in America under the guidance of David McGlynn.
