Kaushik Phukan’s Third Book Published

Kaushik Phukan’s  third novel, A Journey Without a Ticket, will be published by Publish America on 16th of April, 2009. It will be available in bookstores in US and Europe.

The book is based on life stories of people the author has met in his numerous train journeys. Most stories are true, although they have been sprinkled with fictional and imaginary characters and incidents. The story starts with the author running to catch a long-distance train. He is able board the train, but pretty soon he realizes that in his hurry, he forgot to bring his ticket and wallet with. The book is a live recollection of the people he meets, the scenes he sees and the thoughts that run through his mind. Each character has story to say. Each incident that he tells is an ironic and sarcastic reflection of contemporary society in Assam and India.

His previous books The Brahmaputra (Silent Screams by the River) and  Meera have been acclaimed by readers. All three of his books can be purchased directed from Publish America  at .
