If there can be only one rock 'n roll memoir on your reading list this year, make sure it is guitarist Andy Summers' "One Train Later". Excellent read (more about the book in a future post), and I bet this great guitarist's currency is going to go through the roof in Bengal very soon.
Here's what he has to say about "young Calcuttans", an observation that could have come from that other great rock 'n roll memoir, "An Argumentative Indian":
"In the evenings I join up with a crowd of forward-thinking young Calcuttans who argue vehemently with one another about everything. They are verbal, cerebral, and intense in a way that is characteristic of the people in this part of India".
