Gregory David Roberts was born in Melbourne, Australia. A gifted writer and student, he became addicted to heroin when his marriage collapsed and he lost the custody of his daughter. When he committed a series of robberies with an imitation pistol, he was described as the Gentleman Bandit. Sentenced to nineteen years in prison, he escaped and journeyed to New Zealand, Asia, Africa, and Europe. For ten of those fugitive years he lived in Bombay-where he established a free medical clinic for slum-dwellers, and worked as a counterfeiter, smuggler, gunrunner, and street soldier for a branch of the Bombay mafia. Recaptured in Germany, he served out his sentence there and in Australian prisons. Upon his release, he established a successful multimedia company, and since the international publication of Shantaram, he is a full-time writer, at home in several countries.

The only power that has any real meaning is the power to better the world.” If you EVER decide to READ this book that is 933 pages long, chose PLEASE the audio-book that is 43 hours long. Humphrey Bower IS a BOMB. Ho...

Always nice when an author turns up in your store to buy a copy of his book for someone, and you ambush him to sign another copy for yourself!

Shantaram is easily one of the most beautifully written books, ever.
