Having escaped an Australian maximum security prison, a disillusioned man loses himself in the slums of Bombay, where he works for a drug kingpin, smuggles arms for a crime lord, and forges bonds with fellow exiles
The mountain shadow by Gregory David Roberts( Book )
40 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 957 libraries worldwide
A sequel to SHANTARAM but equally a standalone novel, The Mountain Shadow follows Lin on further adventures in shadowy worlds and cultures. It is a novel about seeking identity, love, meaning, purpose, home, even the secret of life ... As the story begins, Lin has found happiness and love, but when he gets a call that a friend is in danger, he has no choice but to go to his aid, even though he knows that leaving this paradise puts everything at risk, including himself and his lover. When he arrives to fulfil his obligation, he enters a room with eight men: each will play a significant role in the story that follows. One will become a friend, one an enemy, one will try to kill Lin, one will be killed by another ... Some characters appeared in Shantaram, others are introduced for the first time, including Navida Der, a half-Irish, half-Indian detective, and Edras, a philosopher with fundamental beliefs. Gregory David Roberts is an extraordinarily gifted writer whose stories are richly rewarding on many levels. Like Shantaram, The Mountain Shadow will be a compelling adventure story with a profound message at its heart

Crime and refuge by Odd Nerdrum( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 88 libraries worldwide
A provocative and prolific painter, Odd Nerdrum employs old-world techniques and an ancient Greek palette to craft paintings that follow in the tradition of the masters Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Titian. Ever since his beginnings as a painter in the early sixties, Nerdrum has been a provocative voice among his peers, often representing sociopolitical struggle and the plight of the oppressed. His depictions of the human figure glow with warmth and dignity, and his timeless themes resonate with his viewers regardless of culture and social standing. Just as the figures in Nerdrum's paintings struggle through barren, often post-apocalyptic landscapes, his vital and poignant works stand out amongst the stark abstractions of the world of modern art. He remains a provocateur in his native Norway, a challenging voice in contemporary society, and one of the most exciting creators of our time. Throughout the last 30 years of his painting, a recurring archetype emerges

Shantaram is the intriguing tale of a man who lost everything - his home, his family and his soul - and found his humanity while living on the wildest edge of experience. The novel is based on the life of the author, once one of Australia's most wanted men. Known as the Building Society Bandit in the 1970s, he was sentenced to 19 years before escaping from Victoria's maximum-security prison, Pentridge. He fled to India and lived in Bombay where he set up a free health clinic in the slums, acted in Bollywood movies, worked for the local mafia as a forger, counterfeiter and smuggler and ran guns to the mujaheddin guerilla fighters in Afghanistan. He was eventually recaptured in Germany and extradited back to Australia to serve out his sentence
