The Boy Who Made God Smile is the story of a family in crisis set against the background of India’s "God Business".  Many of the principal scenes take place in and around the fairy-tale ashram of the controversial avatar Sai Baba. The story concerns three generations of an international silk family, so we weave between the rag market and the fancy silk store of Birmingham, the emporium and the Indian coffee house in Mahatma Gandhi Road in Bangalore. We visit villages, holy rivers, and an improbable hospital.  A family is fractured and troubled. The grandfather is terminally ill, and it is not a convenient time to die. His business practices are convoluted and corrupt. He seeks to bribe God to buy his way out of Heaven.  His son, whilst born in Bangalore, has spent most of his adult life in England. He has no intention of returning to India and finds its rituals baffling.  The central character is the son, Hari. He champions a beggar girl called Lunasha, is befriended by a filmmaker called Jack, and learns much from the 121-year-old Borg and the doctor, a lifelong friend of Baba. Jean Paul is his spiritual guide and Maddy his earthly mentor. In his confusion, Hari asks the most important questions in the book. Few are answered. 1. Language: English. Narrator: G.J. Martin.

'The language [takes] on a musicality that is in sharp contrast to the bleak setting . . . refreshing . . . a strong debut.' —New York Times Book Review   “Subramanian writes with empathy and exuberance, offering a much-needed glimpse into a world that too many of us don't even know exists. This is a book to give your little sister, your mother, your best friend, yourself, so together you can celebrate the strength of women and girls, the tenacity it takes to survive in a world that would rather have you disappear.” —Nylon In the tight-knit community known as Heaven, a ramshackle slum hidden between luxury high-rises in Bangalore, India, five girls on the cusp of womanhood forge an unbreakable bond. Muslim, Christian, and Hindu; queer and straight; they are full of life, and they love and accept one another unconditionally. Whatever they have, they share. Marginalized women, they are determined to transcend their surroundings.   When the local government threatens to demolish their tin shacks in order to build a shopping mall, the girls and their mothers refuse to be erased. Together they wage war on the bulldozers sent to bury their homes, and, ultimately, on the city that wishes that families like them would remain hidden forever. Elegant, poetic, and vibrant,  A People’s History of Heaven takes a clear-eyed look at adversity and geography--and dazzles in its depiction of these women’s fierceness and determination not just to survive, but to triumph.
