In 1997, her debut novel made waves the likes of which the Indian literary scene had never witnessed. Bagging the Booker Prize for her very first novel put Arundhati Roy on the map.
Roy has spent the last two decades fighting for causes that matter, rubbing the establishment the wrong way, and becoming “the great writer activist”. She’s been fighting the powers-that-be with everything she’s got, and her non-fiction body of work is truly brilliant.
Her second novel, ‘The Ministry of Utmost Happiness’ is due to come out in 2017.
I am glad to report that the mad souls (even the wicked ones) in The Ministry of Utmost Happiness have found a way into the world, and that I have found my publishers.
Those of us who love her work, wait with bated breath. Those of you who haven’t read anything written by her, do yourselves a favor, go out and get your hands on one of her books — fiction or non-fiction.
Happy reading, all!
