White Tiger by Aravind Adiga

Book Description

A stunning literary debut critics have likened to Richard Wright s Native Son , The White Tiger follows a darkly comic Bangalore driver through the poverty and corruption of modern India s caste society. This is the authentic voice of the Third World, like you've never heard it before (John Burdett, Bangkok 8 ). The white tiger of this novel is Balram Halwai, a poor Indian villager whose great ambition leads him to the zenith of Indian business culture, the world of the Bangalore entrepreneur. On the occasion of the president of China s impending trip to Bangalore, Balram writes a letter to him describing his transformation and his experience as driver and servant to a wealthy Indian family, which he thinks exemplifies the contradictions and complications of Indian society. Recalling The Death of Vishnu and Bangkok 8 in ambition, scope, The White Tiger is narrative genius with a mischief and personality all its own. Amoral, irreverent, deeply endearing, and utterly contemporary, this novel is an international publishing sensation and a startling, provocative debut."
