For me a curate's egg Parts read so beautifully and poignantly; two deaths rock not only the protagonist but the youthful world into which the reader has access Death overall is dealt with beautifully by Chakravarti But as a whole the text didn't cohere for me The insistence on repeating the PM's piss in a bottle refrain went way beyond the genre's engagement with childish delight in imagery to simply reach cringing annoyance Perhaps the novel was overly long In any case a good read but often a rounded psychological portrait of growing pains was sacrificed in favour of a surface level representation

In an elite boarding school in Rajasthan year old Barun Ray aka Brandy meets his soulmates Fish. Some books are enjoyable purely for their nostalgic value I imagine that’s why a rash of memoirs have been cropping up in recent years first saluting the Greatest Generation and now reminiscing about the 60’s and 70’s Tin Fish by Sudeep Chakravarti is a novel of nostalgia In India anyone you meet who has survived public boarding school is full of rosy memories of times had and friends made Tin Fish memorializes Class 10 of 1979 at Mayo CollegeBesides the obvious episodes about girls teachers friends and students Chakravarti uses a very schoolboy esue language to add to the nostalgia factor of the book Not only do the characters talk in the slang of the day but so does the narrator The sentences are long enough to risk being run on and the syntax is rather free form This makes for a uick but not particularly in depth read Also as the reader screams through the story at break neck speed he has a tendency to miss the small specks of important detail the author occasionally drops in among the slang and youthful angst Despite the literary shortcomings Tin Fish is a must read for anyone who looks back fondly at his time attending or teaching at an Indian boarding school
