In his compelling new work of fiction; Aravind Adiga has imagined the small Indian city of Kittur; an everytown nestling on the coast south of Goa and north of Calicut. Through the myriad and distinctive voices of its inhabitants; an entire Indian world comes vividly and unforgettably to life. From a middle-aged Communist to an Islamic terrorist; from the young children of a Tamil building-site worker to a privileged and alienated schoolboy; from an idealistic journalist to a Brahmin housemaid; Adiga has produced a microcosm of Indian life in the 80s; the years between the assassinations of Indira Gandhi and her son Rajiv. Muslim; Christian and Hindu; high-caste and low-caste; rich and poor: all of Indian life - the 'sorrowful parade of humanity' - is here. Journeying through Kittur's streets and schoolyards; bedrooms and businesses; its inner workings and outer limits; Adiga conjures a remarkable fictional landscape. Sizzling with acid observations; and textured with wicked humour and gentle humanity; Between the Assassinations is a triumph of voice and imagination.
