Yes tons of weird history I did not know, having only heard the name and seen occasional photos of Krishnamurti. So many twists and turns. And again I like that Kunzru has the tone of someone who was probably a bit of a sarcastic dick in his twenties and has mellowed and come around to finding value in a wide range of human experience as a middle aged parent.
