Vikas Adam has paired with Salman Rushdie in a number of his novels. The pairing always worked and there was no exception this time either.
A highly mysterious billionaire from a foreign country takes up his residence in The Gardens community, which is in the Greenwich Village of New York. This was on the inauguration day of Barack Obama. The residents of the vicinity were intrigued quickly by the newcomer along with his family. Along with his untraceable accent and improbable name, Nero Golden has brought his 3 sons. The alcoholic Petya had the reputation of an excellent recluse and had a tortured mind. Then there is Apu who is spiritually and sexually omnivorous and flamboyant artist as well. There is no woman, wife, or mother at home. This was true until a Russian ex-pat, Vasilisa snags Neo and became the queen to his king.
The neighbor Rene was the ultimate guide into the Golden’s world. He grovels himself into their home while researching a movie about the Goldens.
The Golden House is a hurtling mystery set against the panorama of contemporary culture and politics. The book will give you a good literary time and the vocal performance by Vikas is special as well. A definite listen for fictional lovers.
