The wait is over - twenty years after The God of Small Things, fans can finally read the astonishing second novel by Arundhati Roy LONGLISTED FOR THE WOMEN´S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2018 LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017 NOMINATED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK CRITICS CIRCLE AWARD FOR FICTION Longlisted for the Carnegie Medal 2018 THE SUNDAY TIMES #1 and THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER ´A sprawling kaleidoscopic fable´ Guardian, Books of the Year ´Roy´s second novel proves as remarkable as her first´ Financial Times ´A great tempest of a novel... which will leave you awed by the heat of its anger and the depth of its compassion´ Washington Post The Ministry of Utmost Happiness takes us on a journey of many years-the story spooling outwards from the cramped neighbourhoods of Old Delhi into the burgeoning new metropolis and beyond, to the Valley of Kashmir and the forests of Central India, where war is peace and peace is war, and where, from time to time, ´normalcy´ is declared. Anjum, who used to be Aftab, unrolls a threadbare carpet in a city graveyard that she calls home. A baby appears quite suddenly on a pavement, a little after midnight, in a crib of litter. The enigmatic S. Tilottama is as much of a presence as she is an absence in the lives of the three men who loved her. The Ministry of Utmost Happiness is at once an aching love story and a decisive remonstration. It is told in a whisper, in a shout, through tears and sometimes with a laugh. Its heroes are people who have been broken by the world they live in and then rescued, mended by love-and by hope. For this reason, they are as steely as they are fragile, and they never surrender. This ravishing, magnificent book reinvents what a novel can do and can be. And it demonstrates on every page the miracle of Arundhati Roy´s storytelling gifts. ´A novel that demands and rewards the reader´s concentration, this is a dazzling return to form´ Independent ´This novel is a freedom song. Every page...
