The radiance of ashes by Cyrus Mistry( Book )

Jingo is something of a drifter who lives on money from his parents, parttime employment as a market researcher, and fantasies of being a writer. After a moment of rash bravery, he finds himself forced to lie low for a while. Hiding out in the underbelly of the city slums, Jingo recalls his cosseted childhood as the apple of his mother's eye and - sometimes - the bane of his father's existence, and his long-standing and destructive relationship with Cris, a middle-class East Indian girl, and the woman he once thought the love of his life. But as past and present collide, Jingo is forced to consider his life so far, and realises he must decide what he wants before it is too late

It is only at his place of work, where he wields some power, that Percy displays a measure of authority and self-assurance.
