Product Description

The “delightful, vivid, and fresh” true-to-life story of two London barrow boys who turned rags to riches in 1990s India.“…a rip-roaring tale of dodgy dealings and hilarious happenings.”“…this was the most fun reading I can remember…”“…I laughed out loud as I devoured every page…’“…riveting stuff, brilliantly written…”RUPEE MILLIONAIRES It is 1990, the heyday of Thatcher’s Britain, and a new decade is dawning. As London’s banks and stock markets start filling up with young entrepreneurs called “yuppies”, a completely different type of wheeler-dealer – the world traveller merchant adventurer – is emerging on the other side of the world, in India. Meet Frank and Spud, two such maverick tycoons, with one dream in common – to become rupee millionaires and to change the face of hippy-dippy fashion in the West forever. First friends, then partners, then deadly enemies, this is the hilarious, true-to-life story of their eight-year rollercoaster ride from the bustling markets of London to the colourful bazaars of Delhi and Rajasthan. Only one of them will prevail. Whom will it be?REVIEWS:“If you like comedies, travelogues and/or memoirs then you’ll love this book. The charm and richness of India is portrayed beautifully, and together with some great characters, surprising twists and emotional moments, this is a truly enjoyable read. This book is about self-searching, faith, hope, love and friendship – it is also about the depths of foolishness we human beings can reach with all of our quirks and foibles. This story is so much more than a mere memoir or travelogue. I cannot recommend it highly enough. ~ Awesome Indies“Where to start with my thoughts on this captivating story? Honestly? It's the most entertainment I've had (with words) since Round Ireland with a Fridge, which, if you could splice together with The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, might bring you close to imagining the heady pull of Frank Kusy's superb Rupee Millionaires.”~ Kindledays“Mr Kusy is clearly capable of writing vivid and enticing portraits of India – his past as a travel writer shines through, and we see India as if we are there first hand.”~ Harper Collins“Once started, begs to be read in one sitting. It is full of flavour, especially the scents and scintillations of India as we've never read about them before, and satisfies on every level." ~ Grady Harp, Hall of Fame ‘Vine’ reviewer“This book is a memoir that will make you laugh and cry and feel like you've made friends. You'll fall in love with India and even a little bit with London.” ~ Jay Mittener, Top 500 Amazon reviewer
