Em and the Big Hoom

By Jerry Pinto
Narrated by Neil Shah / 6 hours 5 minutes

First published by a small press in India, Jerry Pinto’sdevastatingly original debut novel has already taken the literary world bystorm. Suffused with compassion, humor, and hard-won wisdom, Em and the BigHoom is a modern masterpiece, and its American publication is certain to beone of the major literary events of the season.

Meet Imelda and Augustine, or—as our young narrator callshis unusual parents—Em and the Big Hoom. Most of the time, Em smokesendless beedies and sings her way through life. She is the sun aroundwhich everyone else orbits. But as enchanting and high-spirited as she can be,when Em’s bipolar disorder seizes her she becomes monstrous, sometimes withcalamitous consequences for herself and others. This accomplished debut isgraceful and urgent, with a one-of-a-kind voice that will stay with readerslong after the last page.
