Visitors come and go, taking, praying, pleading with him to rise from his coma but there is no reaction from Banjara, a prisoner of the technicolour film that play inside his head. As if for the first time, he watches himself rise to the heights of Bomaby's commercial cinema from unremarkable beginnings, and encounter again all the people he met and used along the way... As a backdrop to these characters is an endless carousel of the major hits he's acted in-guady, exuberant, beguiling- a never ending fantasy that (as be realizes now, when he is unable to redeem a single moment) took over his life completely and transformed it into an astonishing, compelling lie. Show Business is many books rolle dinto one-it is a story about the telling of stories, it is a wonderfully funny tale about the romance and folly of cinema, it is a novel on an epic scale of ambition, greed love, deception and death. And, perhaps most important, it is a fable for our time which teaches us that we live in a world where illusion is the only reality and nothing is what is seems.
