Shantaram is an incredible read. The novel is written by Gregory Roberts who was a convicted Australian bank robber and heroin addict who escaped from a maximum security prison, obtains a fake passport and moves to the slums of India. There, he joins the mafia, sets up a free health clinic, falls in love, has near-death experiences and so much more. Highly recommend :)
