(From the publisher):
Raju's first stop after his release from prison is the barber shop. Then he decides to take refuge in an abandoned temple. Raju used to be India's most corrupt tourist guide--but now a peasant mistakes him for a holy man. Gradually, almost grudgingly, Raju begins to play the part. He succeeds so well that God himself intervenes to put Raju's new holiness to the test.
