Praise for Aravind Adiga:

‘Adiga is a real writer – that is to say, someone who forges an original voice and vision’ Sunday Times

‘Beautifully done . . . As honest a book as it is entertaining: funny and engaging’ John Burnside, The Times (Last Man In Tower)

‘Adiga achieves in a dozen pages what many novels fail to do in hundreds: convincingly render individual desire, disappointment and survival . . . Between the Assassinations commands attention from beginning to end’ San Francisco Chronicle

‘Blazingly savage and brilliant . . . Not a single detail in this novel rings false or feels confected’ Neel Mukherjee, Sunday Telegraph (The White Tiger)
