The Literary Club of the Asiatic Society of MUmbai takes pleasure in inviting you to a talk by author Jerry Pinto on his latest publication, “The Education of Yuri” on Tuesday 11th April at 5 pm in the Durbar Hall of the Society.

This is a coming-of-age novel or bildungsroman, a tale that is warm, tender and funny. It is a novel on urban adolescence in India, it depicts the trials and tribulations of a precocious 15 year old growing up in Bombay in the early 1980s. You empathise with him as he experiences the intensity, pleasure and meaning of friendship and compassion and you savour the author’s unerring ear for language and dialogue.

This is a novel about a period in time when books and learning mattered, when poetry was recited and discussed. It is an oeuvre that is deeply rooted in Mumbai’s topography, in its social geography and its cultural history, it will be loved for decades by readers across generations.
Come and listen to Jerry Pinto, an author who writes straight from the heart and offers the reader the pleasure of recognition and nostalgia along with moments of pure hilarity.
Tea will be served at 4.30 pm.
