I actually liked this book more than I thought I would. The story is about one week in the life of Raj, a professor that belongs to a Tennis Club that has all sorts of problems with things he said both to the club members and to his students. His words go back to haunt him and he basically can't think about anything else. Each chapter is one day, and is packed with what he did that day and all the memories that those events stirred. It's not a book I would normally choose, so I'm glad I received an advance copy of this. I'm not a member of an exclusive tennis club, but I can identify myself with most of the situations he faces as an academic professor, and how sometimes things we say might blow out of proportions.
