India: “White Tiger” by Aravind Adiga
"The perfect antidote to lyrical India." - Publishers Weekly "This fast-moving novel, set in India, is being sold as a corrective to the glib, dreamy exoticism Western readers often get...If these are the hands that built India, their grandkids really are going to kick America's ass...BUY IT." - New York Magazine "Darkly comic...Balram's appealingly sardonic voice and acute observations of the social order are both winning and unsettling." - The New Yorker "Aravind Adiga's The White Tiger is one of the most powerful books I've read in decades. No hyperbole. This debut novel from an Indian journalist living in Mumbai hit me like a kick to the head -- the same effect Richard Wright's Native Son and Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man had. - USA Today For those who want to discuss movie I recommend Deepa Mehta's trilogy of "Fire"(1998), "Earth"(1998) & "Water"(2006)
