Between the Assassinations

Between the Assassinations
Title: Between the Assassinations
Author:
Genre: prose
Annotation:On India`s south-western coast, between Goa and Calicut, lies Kittur a small, nondescript every town. Aravind Adiga acts as our guide to the town, mapping overlapping lives of Kittur`s residents. Here, an illiterate Muslim boy working at the train station finds himself tempted by an Islamic terrorist; a bookseller is arrested for selling a copy of 'The Satanic Verses'; a rich, spoiled, half-caste student decides to explode a bomb in school; a sexologist has to find a cure for a young boy who may have AIDS. What emerges is the moral biography of an Indian town and a group portrait of ordinary Indians in a time of extraordinary transformation, over the seven-year period between the assassinations of Prime Minister Gandhi and her son Rajiv. Keenly observed and finely detailed, 'Between the Assassinations' is a triumph of voice and imagination.
