    !!!!!!! NYT MAVEBÆLTE KAN BESTILLES DIREKTE HOS FORLAG !!!!!!! Bjergets skygge begynder i det myldrende og pulserende Bombay, to år efter begivenhederne i Shantaram, hvor millioner af læsere verden over blev præsenteret for Lin, den australske flygtning, som slår sig ned i slummen i Bombay og bliver hyret til at forfalske pas for mafiaen. I Shantaram mistede Lin to personer, han elskede: sin faderfigur, Khaderbhai, der døde, og sin sjæleven, Karla, der havde giftet sig med en indisk mediebaron. Lin er kommet tilbage til et meget forandret Bombay. Mange af vennerne er borte, og nye mafialedere har viklet mafiaen ind i voldelige intriger, som eskalerer. En hellig mand udfordrer Lin. Alt, hvad han troede, han vidste om kærligheden og livet, bliver sat på prøve. Men Lin kan ikke forlade byen: Karla og et skæbnesvangert løfte holder ham fast. Og dermed er Shantarams læsere tilbage, hvor de ønsker at være – fastholdt i Gregory David Roberts’ magiske fortællergreb. Bjergets skygge er en storslået fortælling om jagten på identitet i en omskiftelig verden af brutalitet, kulturforskelle og hjemløshed. Det er en altopslugende roman som spænder fra røveri og gangsterhistorie til kærlighedsroman og skæbnedrama. Livsklogt og stærkt vanedannende!

    I begyndelsen af 80´erne ankom Gregory David Roberts, bankrøver og heroinmisbruger, til Indien, hvor han levede i et af Bombays slumkvarterer, efter at være flygtet fra et australsk fængsel. Her etablerede han en gratis sundhedsklinik og blev optaget af den lokale mafia, hvor han arbejdede med hvidvaskning af penge, med dokumentfalsknerier og som gangster. Samtidig fandt han tid til at lære hindi og marathi, blive forelsket og tilbringe en umenneskelig tid i et indisk fængsel. Herefter, hvis det i sig selv ikke var nok, optrådte han også i Bollywood-film og kæmpede med mujahedinerne i Afghanistan.

    'A literary masterpiece . . . at once erudite and intimate, reflective and funny . . . it has the grit and pace of a thriller' Daily TelegraphA novel of high adventure, great storytelling and moral purpose, based on an extraordinary true story of eight years in the Bombay underworld.'In the early 80s, Gregory David Roberts, an armed robber and heroin addict, escaped from an Australian prison to India, where he lived in a Bombay slum. There, he established a free health clinic and also joined the mafia, working as a money launderer, forger and street soldier. He found time to learn Hindi and Marathi, fall in love, and spend time being worked over in an Indian jail. Then, in case anyone thought he was slacking, he acted in Bollywood and fought with the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan . . . Amazingly, Roberts wrote Shantaram three times after prison guards trashed the first two versions. It's a profound tribute to his willpower . . . At once a high-kicking, eye-gouging adventure, a love saga and a savage yet tenderly lyrical fugitive vision.' Time Out

    The first glimpse of the sea on Marine Drive filled my heart, if not my head. I turned away from the red shadow. I stopped thinking of that pyramid of killers, and Sanjay's improvidence. I stopped thinking about my own part in the madness. And I rode, with my friends, into the end of everything.Shantaram introduced millions of readers to a cast of unforgettable characters through Lin, an Australian fugitive, working as a passport forger for a branch of the Bombay mafia. In The Mountain Shadow, the long-awaited sequel, Lin must find his way in a Bombay run by a different generation of mafia dons, playing by a different set of rules. It has been two years since the events in Shantaram, and since Lin lost two people he had come to love: his father figure, Khaderbhai, and his soul mate, Karla, married to a handsome Indian media tycoon. Lin returns from a smuggling trip to a city that seems to have changed too much, too soon. Many of his old friends are long gone, the new mafia leadership has become entangled in increasingly violent and dangerous intrigues, and a fabled holy man challenges everything that Lin thought he'd learned about love and life. But Lin can't leave the Island City: Karla, and a fatal promise, won't let him go.

    "e;It took me a long time and most of the world to learn what I know about love and fate and the choices we make, but the heart of it came to me in an instant, while I was chained to a wall and being tortured."e;So begins this epic, mesmerizing first novel by Gregory David Roberts, set in the underworld of contemporary Bombay. Shantaram is narrated by Lin, an escaped convict with a false passport who flees maximum security prison in Australia for the teeming streets of a city where he can disappear.Accompanied by his guide and faithful friend, Prabaker, the two enter Bombay's hidden society of beggars and gangsters, prostitutes and holy men, soldiers and actors, and Indians and exiles from other countries, who seek in this remarkable place what they cannot find elsewhere.As a hunted man without a home, family, or identity, Lin searches for love and meaning while running a clinic in one of the city's poorest slums, and serving his apprenticeship in the dark arts of the Bombay mafia. The search leads him to war, prison torture, murder, and a series of enigmatic and bloody betrayals. The keys to unlock the mysteries and intrigues that bind Lin are held by two people. The first is Khader Khan: mafia godfather, criminal-philosopher-saint, and mentor to Lin in the underworld of the Golden City. The second is Karla: elusive, dangerous, and beautiful, whose passions are driven by secrets that torment her and yet give her a terrible power.Burning slums and five-star hotels, romantic love and prison agonies, criminal wars and Bollywood films, spiritual gurus and mujaheddin guerrillas---this huge novel has the world of human experience in its reach, and a passionate love for India at its heart. Based on the life of the author, it is by any measure the debut of an extraordinary voice in literature.

    Odin iz samyh porazitel'nyh romanov nachala XXI veka. EHta prelomlennaya v hudozhestvennoj forme ispoved' cheloveka, kotoryj sumel vybrat'sya iz bezdny i ucelet', protaranila vse spiski bestsellerov i zasluzhila vostorzhennye sravneniya s proizvedeniyami luchshih pisatelej novogo vremeni, ot Melvilla do Heminguehya. Podobno avtoru, geroj ehtogo romana mnogo let skryvalsya ot zakona. Lishennyj posle razvoda s zhenoj roditel'skih prav, on pristrastilsya k narkotikam, sovershil ryad ograblenij i byl prigovoren avstralijskim sudom k devyatnadcati godam zaklyucheniya. Bezhav na vtoroj god iz tyur'my strogogo rezhima, on dobralsya do Bombeya, gde byl fal'shivomonetchikom i kontrabandistom, torgoval oruzhiem i uchastvoval v razborkah indijskoj mafii, a takzhe nashel svoyu nastoyashchuyu lyubov', chtoby vnov' poteryat' ee, chtoby snova najti...

    Vpervye na russkom - dolgozhdannoe prodolzhenie odnogo iz samyh porazitel'nyh romanov nachala XXI veka. "e;SHantaram - ehto byla prelomlennaya v hudozhestvennoj forme ispoved' cheloveka, kotoryj sumel vybrat'sya iz bezdny i ucelet', razoshedshayasya po miru tirazhom chetyre milliona ehkzemplyarov (iz nih polmilliona - v Rossii) i zasluzhivshaya vostorzhennye sravneniya s proizvedeniyami luchshih pisatelej novogo vremeni, ot Melvilla do Heminguehya. Mastityj Dzhonatan Kehrroll pisal: "e;CHelovek, kotorogo "e;SHantaram"e; ne tronet do glubiny dushi, libo ne imeet serdca, libo mertv... "e;SHantaram"e; - "e;Tysyacha i odna noch'"e; nashego veka. EHto bescennyj podarok dlya vsekh, kto lyubit chitat'. I vot nakonec G. D. Roberts napisal prodolzhenie istorii Lina po prozvishchu SHantaram, bezhavshego iz avstralijskoj tyur'my strogogo rezhima i stavshego v Bombee fal'shivomonetchikom i kontrabandistom. Itak, proshlo dva goda s tekh por, kak Lin poteryal dvuh samyh blizkih emu lyudej: Kaderbhaya - glavarya mafii, pogibshego v afganskih gorah, i Karlu - zagadochnuyu, vozhdelennuyu krasavicu, vyshedshuyu zamuzh za bombejskogo mediamagnata. Teper' Linu predstoit vypolnit' poslednee poruchenie, dannoe emu Kaderbhaem, zavoevat' doverie zhivushchego na gore mudreca, sberech' golovu v neuderzhimo razgorayushchemsya konflikte novyh glavarej mafii, no glavnoe - obresti lyubov' i veru.

    Shantaram, ime koje znaci Covjek Bozjeg Mira, dobio je onaj koji mu se najmanje nadao - odbjegli zatvorenik, bivsi ovisnik i pljackas, ocajnik koji je iz Australije pobjegao u Indiju s krivotvorenim ispravama, bez proslosti, bez nade, bez imena. A cime stranac moze zasluziti takvo ime u prenapucenom, kaoticnom, zastrasujucem i zadivljujucem gradu poput Bombaya? Bas kao i njegov tvorac Gregory David Roberts, junak romana Shantaram zaronit ce u Indiju ne stedeci se i otvorena srca - spoznat ce i raj i pakao, zivjeti u najsiromasnijem slamu, lijeciti u improviziranoj klinici, naukovati kod kralja bombayske mafije. Potraga za iskupljenjem vodit ce ga kroz Indiju kakvu je iskusio malokoji zapadnjak: u drustvu prosjaka i gangstera, mudraca i glumaca, prostitutki i svetaca prolazit ce kroz trznice ljudima i pusionice opijuma, kroz skrovita mjesta koja mogu promijeniti svako srce, sve do zatvora i rata, sve do izdaje i ubojstva. Shantaram je epski, po mnogocemu zadivljujuci roman, koji osvaja pricom iza koje stoji golemo, fascinantno zivotno iskustvo njezina autora. Ako postoji knjizevno djelo koje za pogled izvana moze otkljucati Indiju - od najblistavijih do najmracnijih njezinih mjesta - onda je to ovaj roman, pun ljudskog razumijevanja, iskrenosti i ljubavi.
