His first novel ‘The Cripple and His Talismans’ in 2004 won critical acclaim for its magic realist depiction of the seedy beggars’ underworld of India.His second novel, The Song of Kahunsha, was chosen as a CBC Book Club One pick, and was selected for the 2007 edition of Canada Reads. His third novel ‘Dahanu Road’,is a humorously dark love affair between an Irani boy and local girl. The story proudly depicts the Iranian community.

Boman who has read his nephew Anosh’s book with keen interest feels, “The novel is very captivating and brings out the true Iranian culture. It makes me feel very proud that someone has taken the initiative to rediscover our community by exploring a new enterprise and breaking the norm of being a yet another bakery boy.”
