The Man Without Shelter by Indrajit Garai-Review

About The Book

Lucy, a young lawyer, is on fast track to partnership in her firm. Arnault, a convicted felon, leaves prison after two decades through a piece of evidence in his favor. The two of them come together during a rescue operation at the centre of Paris, and then they go on with their separate lives.

Months later, their paths cross again at a camp for migrants on the edge of Paris.

My Thoughts

I have enjoyed every book I have read by Indrajit Garai. The writing is clear, concise and always thought provoking.
I would think the author would be a deeply contemplative person because of his writing style.
We see two stories here, two topics going their separate ways until they mesh and become entangled.
The main story line features Arnault, a Middle Eastern-French man just having been released from prison after two decades after DNA evidence exonerates him. That is a long time in life to waste that you’ll never get back. We get a real taste of what life is like in Paris for the downtrodden, the homeless, the invisible ones living in migrant camps. He just wants to integrate back into polite society but with none having his back we see the highs and lows of his new life. Crime in many forms is abundant on the streets, will he be an easy target?
We also meet Lucy, a young and impressionable up and coming lawyer, worlds apart from Arnault socially but she’s determined to find him to serve papers that will erase his time in prison.
The book will resonate with many as Parisians face the same problems we face here in America and many countries, homelessness, despair, violence, and a host of other issues.
The book kept my rapt attention, the plot is fascinating and relatable to many.

I was given a complimentary copy of this book.
