Winner of 2016 eLit Book Award, Coinman is a quirky, heartfelt tale of a junior level office worker in India who has a number of eccentricities. The laughingstock of the office, he finds no relief at home; his wife Imli, an obsessed actress, completely vanishes into each role. When his life gets scattered beyond his high tolerance, he decides things in his hands. But that changes course of the lives for many around him.
“Mishra’s debut comic novel is an absurdist tale of office and personal politics set in a small town in northern India.”
“This articulate, wryly amusing creation focuses on simple situations that often have an unexpected, almost magical, twist.”
~IndieReader, 5 Stars
“A quirky, heartfelt novel about finding your identity – and keeping it. In Pawan Mishra’s oddly charming novel, readers are welcomed into the strangely neurotic, passionate, and unfulfilled existence of Coinman. The author raises the banality of normal life to new heights within this novel, and does so in an amusing and thought-provoking way. The story is uniquely enjoyable, and Coinman is a character that will be hard to forget.”
