A monumental new novel from the Booker Prize-winning author of THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS. This is a book about love. Love in the most improbable circumstances. Its geographical setting is precise and particular, but its real setting is the soul. It is peopled by souls of the present as well as the departed. Souls that have been broken by the world we live in and then mended by love.

Roy's second novel proves as remarkable as her first Financial Times A great tempest of a novel... which will leave you awed by the heat of its anger and the depth of its compassion Washington Post A humane, engaged near-fairy tale that soon turns dark - full of characters and their meetings, accidental and orchestrated alike to find, yes, that utmost happiness of which the title speaks Kirkus (starred review) An author worth waiting two decades for Financial Times Ambitious, original, and haunting. A novel [that] fuses tenderness and brutality, mythic resonance and the stuff of headlines ...essential to Roy's vision of a bewilderingly beautiful, contradictory, and broken world Publishers Weekly (starred review) A masterpiece. Roy joins Dickens, Naipaul, Garcia Marquez, and Rushdie in her abiding compassion, storytelling magic, and piquant wit. A tale of suffering, sacrifice and transcendence-an entrancing, imaginative, and wrenching epic -- Donna Seaman Booklist (starred review) The Ministry of Utmost Happiness confirms Roy's status as a writer of delicate human dramas that also touch on some of the largest questions of the day. It is the novel as intimate epic. Expect to see it on every prize shortlist this year The Times Heartfelt, poetic, intimate, laced with ironic humour...The intensity of Roy's writing - the sheer amount she cares about these people - compels you to concentrate...This is the novel one hoped Arundhati Roy would write about India Daily Telegraph Teems with human drama, contains a vivid cast of characters and offers an evocative, searing portrait of modern India Tatler The first novel in 20 years from the Booker-prize winning author of The God of Small Things Penguin
