Black, White and the Grays in Between is an emotional saga of hope, betrayed dreams, and the endless shades of gray. Set across three generations and three cities - Houston, Hyderabad, and the Bombay of the ‘70s - this is a story about love that is often selfless and self-doubting, and the unexpected virtue of listening to your heart.
Abhishek A. Hemrajani holds an MBA from the Indian School of Business, and a Master’s Degree in Engineering from the University of Texas, Arlington. He spends most of his time thinking about this universe and the endless, small but enormously coherent actions that influence our destiny. When he is not critiquing the many vagaries of life, he can be found experimenting in the kitchen or obsessing over anything related to technology and aviation.
Abhishek was raised in Mumbai, India and spent most of his twenties in Dallas, Texas. The idea of this book has traveled and lived with Abhishek for many years. Abhishek attributes his writing style to the strong influence that Khaled Hosseini, Paulo Coelho, and Gabriel García Márquez have had on him. Abhishek lives in Hyderabad, India, and is currently a Product Manager for Microsoft. This is his debut novel.Follow @AuthorHemrajani
