Banker by day, and denizen of Los Angeles clubs by night, the protagonist of Ghalib Shiraz Dhallas first novel is navigating between more than just a day job and an active social life. In Ode to Lata, Ali has left behind a tempestuous childhood inMoreBanker by day, and denizen of Los Angeles clubs by night, the protagonist of Ghalib Shiraz Dhallas first novel is navigating between more than just a day job and an active social life.  In Ode to Lata, Ali has left behind a tempestuous childhood in postcolonial Kenya, the overprotective mother who raised him on a steady diet of Hindi cinema, an emotionally abusive bisexual lover, and confused memories of his fathers violent death at the hands of his mistress.  Now his mothers messages ramble on his answering machine when he wants no one but his one obsession, Richard to call.

  Passionate and unflinchingly honest in its narrative, Ode to Lata scavenges the depths of one mans misguided search for love in a world of emotionally-void encounters and tangled memories.  All the while, Alis story is intertwined with the unraveling of his parents own doomed relationship and the film music of Bollywoods eminent singer Lata Mangeshkar (Diva of Indian film music and the namesake of the books title).  And it is this hopelessly romantic music that scores their tormented lives and goads them to pursue love through chaos and ecstasy.
