Som Bhaskar is a millionaire-industralist, married to a woman of his choice who has borne him two children, yet relentlessly driven by undefined hunger which he unsuccessfully seeks to satisfy by possession of an object, a business enterprise, a woman.
His search takes him from Bombay to Banares, at once holy and repllent with its narrow, dirty lanes, dancing girls and a mystical aura. Amidst this contrasting juxtaposition of locales, the novel explores the meaning of life and death, illusion and reality, desire and resignation.

Author Bio: Arun Joshi son of a botanist and an eminent educationists, was born in Varanasi and educated in India and the U.S. After getting his Masters degree from M.I.T, he returned to India to pursue a career in the corporate world. Yet writing remained his passion. In the five novels he wrote he spun out some of the most thought-provoking and outstanding fiction writing in the Indian literature.
The Last Labyrinth won him the Sahitya Akademi Award, Indias highest literary honour.
