The White Tiger, by Aravind Adiga Wins aravind_adiga2008 Booker

the_white_tigerLondon 14th October The White Tiger, a debut novel by Aravind Adiga has on the 2008 Man Booker prize and with it the £50,000 prize.  The novel is described as a ‘compelling, angry and darkly humorous’ novel about a man’s journey from Indian village life to entrepreneurial success. It was described by one reviewer as an ‘unadorned portrait’ of India seen ‘from the bottom of the heap’.

The judging panel for the 2008 Man Booker Prize for Fiction comprised: Michael Portillo, former MP and Cabinet Minister; Alex Clark, editor of Granta; Louise Doughty, novelist; James Heneage, founder of Ottakar’s bookshops; and Hardeep Singh Kohli, TV and radio broadcaster.

Michael Portillo commented:

“The judges found the decision difficult because the shortlist contained such strong candidates. In the end, The White Tiger prevailed because the judges felt that it shocked and entertained in equal measure.

“The novel undertakes the extraordinarily difficult task of gaining and holding the reader’s sympathy for a thoroughgoing villain. The book gains from dealing with pressing social issues and significant global developments with astonishing humor.”

Portillo went on to explain that the novel had won overall because of ‘its originality’. He said that The White Tiger presented ‘a different aspect of India’ and was a novel with ‘enormous literary merit’.

Aravind Adiga studied at Columbia and Oxford Universities and is a former correspondent for Time magazine in India. Adiga’s articles have also appeared in publications such as the Financial Times, Independent and Sunday Times.

Aravind Adiga The White Tigerbuy_button from

Balram Halwai is the White Tiger - the smartest boy in his village. His family is too poor for him to afford for him to finish school and he has to work in a teashop, breaking coals and wiping tables. But Balram gets his break when a rich man hires him as achauffeur, and takes him to live in Delhi. The city is a revelation. As he drives his master to shopping malls and call centres, Balram becomes increasingly aware of immense wealth and opportunity all around him, while knowing that he will never be able to gain access to that world. As Balram broods over his situation, he realizes that there is only one way he can become part of this glamorous new India - by murdering his master."The White Tiger" presents a raw and unromanticised India, both thrilling and shocking - from the desperate, almost lawless villages along the Ganges, to the booming Wild South of Bangalore and its technology and outsourcing centres. The first-person confession of a murderer, "The White Tiger" is as compelling for its subject matter as for the voice of its narrator - amoral, cynical, unrepentant, yet deeply endearing.

"'In the grand illusions of a 'rising' India, Aravind Adiga has found a subject Gogol might have envied. With remorselessly and delightfully mordant wit The White Tiger anatomizes the fantastic cravings of the rich; it evokes, too, with starting accuracy and tenderness, the no less desperate struggles of the deprived.' Pankaj Mishra"

The Secret Scripture From Amazon

from £9.30

barry_sebastianNearing her one-hundredth birthday, Roseanne McNulty faces an teh_secret_scriptureuncertain future, as the Roscommon Regional Mental hospital where she's spent the best part of her adult life prepares for closure. Over the weeks leading up to this upheaval, she talks often with her psychiatrist Dr Grene, and their relationship intensifies and complicates. Told through their respective journals, the story that emerges is at once shocking and deeply beautiful. Refracted through the haze of memory and retelling, Roseanne's story becomes an alternative, secret history of Ireland's changing character and the story of a life blighted by terrible mistreatment and ignorance, and yet marked still by love and passion and hope.

sea_of_poppiesAmitav Ghosh (right) Sea of Poppiesghosh_amitavbuy_button From Amazon

At the heart of this epic saga, set just before the Opium Wars, is an old slaving-ship, The Ibis. Its destiny is a tumultuous voyage across the Indian Ocean, its crew a motley array of sailors and stowaways, coolies and convicts. In a time of colonial upheaval, fate has thrown together a truly diverse cast of Indians and Westerners, from a bankrupt Raja to a widowed villager, from an evangelical English opium trader to a mulatto American freedman. As their old family ties are washed away they, like their historical counterparts, come to view themselves as jahaj-bhais or ship-brothers. An unlikely dynasty is born, which will span continents, races and generations. The vast sweep of this historical adventure spans the lush poppy fields of the Ganges, the rolling high seas, and the exotic backstreets of China. But it is the panorama of characters, whose diaspora encapsulates the vexed colonial history of the East itself, which makes Sea of Poppies so breathtakingly alive -- a masterpiece from one of the world's finest novelists.

An epic chronicle of the last 20 years of British life from the Booker longlisted and Granta Best of Young British novelist, Philip Hensher. Beginning in 1974 and ending with the fading of Thatcher's governthe_northern_clemencyment in 1996, The Northern Clemency is Philip Hensher's epic portrait of an entire era, a novel concerned with the lives of ordinary people and history on the move. Set in Sheffield, it charts the relationship between two families: Malcolm and Katherine Glover and their three children; and their neighbours the Sellers family, newly arrived from London so that Bernie can pursue his job with the Electricity Board. The day the Sellers move in there is a crisis across the road: Malcolm Glover has left home, convinced his wife is having an affair. The consequences of this rupture willspread throughout the lives of both couples and their children, in particular 10-year-old Tim Glover, who never quite recovers from a moment of his mother's public cruelty and the amused taunting of 15-year-old Sandra Sellers, childhood crises that will come to a head twenty years later.In the background, England is changing: from a manufacturing and industrial based economy into a new world of shops, restaurants and service industries, a shift particularly marked in the North with the miners' strike of 1984, which has a dramatic impact on both families. Inspired by the expansive scale and webs of relationships of the great nineteenth-century Russian novels, 'The Northern Clemency' shows Philip Hensher to be one of our greatest chroniclers of English life.Publisher: Fourth Estate Ltd

Booker 2007

Kevin Parker rounds it-up- October 17, 2007 London-In a shock result Irish author Anne Enright (left)has won the £50,000 anne_enright(US$102,000) award for her nove,l The Gathering.The prize, founded in 1969, rewards the best novel of the year by a writer from Britain, Ireland or a Commonwealth country. It guarantees the winner instant literary fame and a place in bestseller lists around the globe.Enright let the surprise and delight show on her face as she thanked all those who had kept faith with her down through the years - and told her two children watching the announcement on TV that they could go to bed now."Well, there is nothing to say except I would like to thank the love of my life Martin Murphy [director of the Pavilion Theatre in Dun Laoghaire] and the two fantastic children he gave me," she said, before also thanking her parents and siblings.The author, who lives in Bray, Co Wicklow, said she wished to single out for thanks her friends Ann Marie Hourihane and Colm Toibín "who told me my ship would come in".In a controversial twist, the Booker chairman launched an attack on reviewers. Too many reviewers adopt a reverential tone for books that barely deserve a review, let alone recommendation, the chairman of the 2007 Man Booker Prize said last night.Sir Howard Davies, director of the London School of Economics, used last night’s awards ceremony as a platform to mount the attack on the art of book reviewing before announcing that Anne Enright had won this year’s £50,000 award.Enright, 45, a little-known Irish author who began her career as a television producer, was considered the rank outsider but she saw off competition from the two favourites, Ian McEwan, for On Chesil Beach, and Lloyd Jones, for Mister Pip, as well as the other outsiders, Nicola Barker, Moshin Hamid and Indra Sinha.She won for The Gathering, her fourth novel, a bleak story of a dysfunctional Irish family.Sir Howard Davies described it as “a powerful, uncomfortable and even, at times, angry book . . . an unflinching look at a grieving family in tough and striking language”.That a relatively unknown author won this year’s Man Booker Prize added strength to his argument that novelists who reviewed books by established authors often went overboard in their praise . He said: “I think a little more distance, and critical scepticism, is required by our reviewers, together with greater readiness to notice new names.Reviews The GatheringThe Independent review
