Product description


“Fun, intelligent and leaves you wanting more.” (<em>Toronto Star</em>)

“A dream of a book.” (<em>Winnipeg Free Press</em>)

“This brilliant story, as colossal, vibrant and chaotic as India itself . . . it is not to be missed.” (<em>The Observer</em>)

“A rare, seemingly effortless brew of humour, drama, romance and social realism. . . . Swarup has achieved a triumph with this thrilling, endearing work which gets into the heart and soul of modern India.” (<em>New Zealand Herald</em>)

“Swarup is an accomplished storyteller, and [Slumdog Millionaire] has all the immediacy and impact of an oral account.” (<em>Daily Mail</em>)

“Mingling broad humour with incisive social comment . . . absorbing and richly entertaining reading.” (<em>The Times</em>)

“This lively picaresque novel has an original and telling premise . . . a colourful portrait of Indian society is painted with remarkable lightness and wit.” (<em>Sunday Telegraph</em>)

“A hugely successful mixture of satire and intrigue.” (<em>Independent on Sunday</em>)

“Sweet, sorrowful and funny. An enchanting tale.” (<em>The Sunday Tribune</em> (India))

“This page-turning novel reels from farce to melodrama to fairy tale.” (<em>You Magazine</em>)
