“Unlike almost any other Indian novel you might have read in recent years, this page-turner offers a completely bald, angry, unadorned portrait of the country as seen from the bottom of the heap; there’s not a sniff of saffron or a swirl of sari anywhere. [Adiga’s hero] is an enticing figure… Even more impressive is the nitty-gritty of Indian life that Adiga unearths the corruption, the class system, the sheer petty viciousness… You’ll read it in a trice and find yourself gripped.” – Andrew Holgate, Sunday Times
