After living in Hong Kong upto the age of twenty, Robin McGowan undertakes a trip to India to the village his father always told him about. McKluskiegunj, an agricultural haven formed in the early 1940s for the Anglo-Indians to live in. But on his arrival, he witnesses that the village is no longer the idyllic home of his father's childhood; it is overrun by outlaws and riddled with politicking, land mafia and conflicts between the various tribes and Anglo-Indians who used to coexists peacefully in the past. A story about the search for home and beauty and the struggle repair life, Mckluskiegunj is an extraordinary novel about memory, displacement and the unflagging desire to belong.
