Fiction • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Spanning a cast of characters that include street urchins and police inspectors, Harsh Nayyar's voice is as flexible as this narrative on modern life in India from the acclaimed winner of the Booker Prize (THE WHITE TIGER, 2008). Nayyar conveys the weariness of the older characters and the exuberance of the younger characters throughout this novel while at the same time reflecting the class, religious, and ethnic diversity of the world’s second-most-populated country. Nayyar’s slightly accented speech sounds authentically like the English of India. He manages to keep up with the ambitious novel, which shifts continually as the story embraces an extended cast of characters and time frames, including nostalgic glances backward to the era of Gandhi and the Indian independence movement.
