Yezdi Pervez Billimoria is a book lover with an avid interest in books and is a voracious reader. His reading habits are wide ranging from James Hadley Chase to James Herriot and from The Bible to Baldacci. He sincerely believes in the adage – a book is man’s best friend – and has many a time sacrificed other transient pleasures to experience the more fulfilling and deep-rooted pleasures of reading.
Apart from reading, the author’s other main passion is music and he is crazy about the Beatles, Rock n roll, Queen and everything in between. This is alongside his love for Hindi film songs with Kishore Kumar, Rafi and Shaan being his favourites. He lives in Bangalore with his wife and two children.
