About love and life

Living alone and working in a city comes with its advantages and disadvantages. While some choose to weigh the advantages over the disadvantages others take a longer time to come to terms with the fact of living and working in a new city. Love, life and all that jazz by Faiyaz Ahmed is a coming of age story about the lives of young twenty somethings set in Mumbai.

In the words of the author, Faiyaz, “the story is about Tania, Sameer, Vikram and Tanveer, who start by exploring their lives after college and how they evolve by discovering the changes in themselves and in their loved ones, and the choices they make. It's about how these changes affects their relationships and shape their personality. This is the journey of life in a new India where the friends support each other and evolve through their experiences and missteps in Love, Life and all that Jazz.”

The first time author Faiyaz drew inspiration from his surroundings when he was working and living in Mumbai all by himself. “The characters are real but the situations are fictional. There are several things that influenced me to write the book, the mannerisms of the characters are one of them,” explains Faiyaz.
