Where Art Thou adopts a third person narrative. Husain's life is split into three parts: six-year-old boy (his childhood), Maqbool (his youth and days of struggle) and M F Husain (the brand).

"Everyone knows me as a painter," says Husain, the first painter in his family. "Through this book, they will know me as a person. I am sharing my ideas with people. People have shown interest because this is not a boring biography about the places I went to or the things I did. It is not a linear biography, as it goes back and forth. It's also very poetic and humorous."
