Publisher's Summary

Prejudice takes place in a plethora of forms. It sprouts a rare growth when a clerk called Coinman can't stop jingling the coins in his pocket. It's a seemingly harmless addiction, but it's one that comes to rule his life and begins to invite the wrath of virtually everyone around him. His work environment becomes increasingly hostile, while his life at home begins to suffer as a result of his wife's obsession with acting. When an attempt to remedy the situation goes horribly wrong, it spurs those involved onto unexpected paths.

In this eccentric tale set in a small town in northern India, Pawan Mishra masterfully weaves ingenuity and sarcasm in a manner that's simultaneously hilarious and tragic. Coinman is a modern-day parable laced with pithy wisdom and psychological insight into human nature - a clever parody of the dynamics of office politics and groupthink. At times, surreal, Mishra's distinctive novel is an overflowing basin of linguistic humor. Eloquently written, this satirical story beautifully depicts how even mature, sensible adults can callously inflict emotional damage upon the most vulnerable.

Winner: 2016 eLit Book Awards for Literary Fiction (Bronze). Finalist: 2016 National Indie Excellence Award for Humor. Finalist: 2016 IAN Book of the Year (General/ Literary Fiction).

    "Original and beautifully written"

    Coinman: An Untold Conspiracy is beautifully written and the story is nothing like what I've encountered before. The story revolves around a man with OCD who likes to jingle coins in his pocket, so his coworkers nickname him Coinman. The group of people he works with constantly gossip about him, spread rumors, mock him and pull pranks on him... basically bullying him. Coinman doesn't have the easiest life at home either, with a wife obsessed with her own well-being, and a mother obsessed with making her son's marriage successful, the man can't catch a break.
    I was really close to giving it more stars but something kept haunting me: this book is marketed as humor. And while it is filled with humorous elements, I was too frustrated by the behavior of all the co-workers to really focus on the satire.
    But I still recommend it. It's an amazing read.
