Σύνοψη του βιβλίου "The Ministry of Utmost Happiness"

LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017SUNDAY TIMES #1 BESTSELLER 'A dazzling return to form' Independent 'Astonishing. This is the novel one hoped Arundhati Roy would write about India... The last twenty years of Indian history seen through the eyes of outsiders: an intersex woman living in a Delhi graveyard who befriends a blind Muslim imam; a young untouchable who changes his name to escape a violent history; a landlord with a dark past in Kashmir; and the woman he loves in vain... The Ministry of Utmost Happiness hums with love for the unconsoled' Daily Telegraph'Glorious [and] remarkable. Roy has a passionate following, and her admirers will not be disappointed. At the novel's heart are three friends from university and the woman they all loved. Their lives come together like puzzle pieces... You will [be] granted a powerful sense of the complexity, energy and diversity of contemporary India, in which darkness and exuberant vitality are inextricably intertwined. Roy's second novel proves as remarkable as her first' Financial Times'Roy writes with astonishing vividness. Again and again beautiful images refresh our sense of the world... The book filled me with awe-not just as a reader, but as a novelist-for the sheer fidelity and beauty of detail... Propulsive, playful, gorgeous' New York Times Book Review 'The unmissable literary read of the summer. With its insights into human nature, its memorable characters and its luscious prose, Ministry is well worth the wait' Time'Staggeringly beautiful-a fierce, fabulously disobedient novel... [It] vibrates with the tragicomedy of myth... Roy is writing at the height of her powers... Urgent, intimate ecstatic' Boston Globe'A searing portrait of modern India' Tatler'This vast novel will leave you awed by the heat of its anger and the depth of its compassion' Washington Post'Humane and impassioned, beautiful and rich. An ambitious story with a profound moral integrity and a deep emotional impact' Chicago Tribune
