Baumgartner's Bombay, Paperback / softback Book

Baumgartner's Bombay Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Hugo Baumgartner is a man who doesn't belong anywhere.

He's a Berlin Jew who travelled to India to escape the Nazis and, after years spent the mercy of his past and his tumultuous adopted land, he has now retired to a seedy cat-filled apartment behind Bombay's Taj Hotel.

But destiny has not finished with Baumgartner, in this haunting tale of the afflictions of exile.
