Book synopsis/description:

Ben Antao boldly captures the spirit of the people of Goa as they transition from a Portuguese colony to becoming a part of India, and then as they immigrate to lands beyond, such as Africa and Canada. Wherever they are, “Getting Goa out of the Goan” remains a difficult task, and their indomitable spirits (alcoholic or ghostly), lusts, foibles and religious obeisance stand out as unique markers. From a review of A Madhouse in Goa by Shane Joseph, a Canadian author.
