Overview: Maximum City

Maximum City, a non-fiction novel by Suketu Mehta is one of the most notable literary works on the city of Mumbai. The book is a mind blowing first person narrative about the city and the socio-political avenues affecting Mumbai. The book is a classic tussle between frustration and agony which the writer feels after experiencing the life in Mumbai. The novel depicts various real life characters that include underworld gangsters, people from the night life, a political leader known for his right wing policies and even a policeman famous for his techniques against terrorists. The novel also features anecdotes about Jain community.

The author has spent his entire childhood in Mumbai and now arrives back in the city after a long duration. The change in the city is obvious and this is what makes the author stunned. Suketu Mehta takes the reader through some of the unknown corners and streets of Mumbai and even shows an inside view of the life of a bar dancer. The riots of 1990's and the socio-political dimensions of this event are narrated in a bold but calm style.
