Neel Mukher­jee Vin­tage £8.99

Mukher­jee’s su­perbly writ­ten third novel is com­posed of five sep­a­rate but loosely in­ter­wo­ven sto­ries deal­ing with char­ac­ters representative of modern In­dia, but the true fo­cus of the book is In­dia her­self. Mukher­jee con­fronts head-on the ap­palling de­pri­va­tion and the caste stigma that be­devil so many lives, and the re­sult is as pow­er­ful as it is dis­turb­ing.
