Shantaram – Gregory David Roberts

A current backpacker’s favorite, and one of mine too.  Set in the early 80’s, an Australian prisoner escapes to mega city Bombay, India for adventure, introspection, and self-discovery.  It echoes the true story of the author’s experiences and the first drafts were written from a prison cell.  A movie is development for 2011.  An excellent read!
