Altaf Tyrewala has an uncanny ability to write the streets and mind-scapes of Mumbai, the city he first captured in prose as nobody else had in No God in Sight and more recently in verse, in Ministry of Hurt Sentiments. His words are sharp with irony and each story is slashed through with deftly satirical insights into the ways of men and the worlds they inhabit.
