MEET BALRAM HALWAI, THE ‘WHITE TIGER’: SERVANT, PHILOSOPHER, ENTREPRENEUR, MURDERER..
‘Compelling, angry, and darkly humorous, The White Tiger is an unexpected journey into a new India. Aravind Adiga is a talent to watch.’
‘With remorselessly and delightfully mordant wit, The White Tiger anatomises the fantastic cravings of the rich; it evokes, too, with startling accuracy and tenderness, the no less desperate struggles of the deprived.’
‘Blazingly savage and brilliant… What Adiga lifts the lid on is also inexorably true: not a single detail in this novel rings false or feels confected. The White Tiger is an excoriating piece of work [that] also manages to be suffused with mordant wit, modulating to clear-eyed pathos.’
