Diana Evans reviews Gautam Malkani's first novel

in the FT. Londonstani won't be released in the US until June, but I am curious to take a look, on the whole I like these extreme-language novels; but I also think a ban should be placed on clever -stan and -stani titles, that is enough already (note Gary Shteyngart's forthcoming Absurdistan--recently excerpted in the New Yorker, but not I think online--and Masha Gessen's "Paranoiastan" in the first issue of n+1).
