Review

“A masterful storyteller. . .”
—Toronto Star

Last Man in Tower pulls off the bravura twin role of moral parable and human drama.”
The Gazette (Montreal)

 “He clearly has a knack for arresting novels that marry story and social commentary. . . . Adiga's story of the man who can't be bought is compelling.”
Winnipeg Free Press

“Funny, provocative and decadent: Aravind Adiga’s Last Man in Tower is the kind of novel that’s so richly insightful about business and character that it’s hard to know where to begin singing its praises.”
The Washington Post

“Retains The White Tiger’s dynamism. . . . by turns fascinating, sensual and horrifying, as [Aravind Adiga’s] writing takes an impressive step onwards.”
—The Independent (UK)

“Rich and lush.”
—The Telegraph (UK)

“[Last Man in Tower] goes the distance. . . .In this complex and multi-layered novel, [Adiga] continues his project of shining a light on the changing face of India, bringing us a picture that is as compelling as it is complex. . .”
— Alex Clark, The Guardian (UK)

“Mr. Adiga captures with heartbreaking authenticity the real struggle in Indian cities, which is for dignity.  A funny yet deeply melancholic work, Last Man in Tower is a brilliant, and remarkably mature, second novel.  A rare achievement.” —The Economist

“Epic. . . .Last Man in Tower is like a prime-time soap opera with a social conscience.  Dickens has found an heir.”
The Sunday Business Post

“This writing is sheer beauty.”
New Zealand Herald

Last Man in Tower vibrates with energy and ideas, with anger and with life. [Adiga’s] writing has been labelled Dickensian.”
—New Zealand Listener
