Reviews

"'Weaving together characters from a variety of castes, religions and backgrounds to give a textured and intimate sense of the exhausting complexity of Indian life and its stifling social attitudes with a dark and smutty sense of humour. [Adiga's] direct, low-key and accessible prose is his great strength, producing pithy stark images.' Evening Standard 'As in The White Tiger, the joy of reading Between the Assassinations derives from the life he breathes into his characters... They are fraught with conflicting desires that time after time end in violence, madness or stifling frustration... Adiga displays the full range of his imagination. This is fiction at its most ambitious and incisive and every bit as impressive as his debut.' Telegraph 'Between the Assassinations is a work of many voices... always lively and keenly observed. Kittur is intended as a microcosm of India.' Sunday Times"
