LONGLISTED FOR THE WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 2018 AND THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2017

'A sprawling kaleidoscopic fable' Guardian, Book of the Year * 'A dazzling return to form' Independent

THE SUNDAY TIMES #1 BESTSELLER FROM THE BOOKER-WINNING AUTHOR OF THE GOD OF SMALL THINGS

'An astonishing intimate epic. This is the novel one hoped Arundhati Roy would write about India' Daily Telegraph

'At magic hour; when the sun has gone but the light has not, armies of flying foxes unhinge themselves from the Banyan trees in the old graveyard and drift across the city like smoke . . .'

So begins The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, Arundhati Roy's incredible follow-up to The God of Small Things. We meet Anjum, who used to be Aftab, who runs a guesthouse in an Old Delhi graveyard and gathers around her the lost, the broken and the cast out. We meet Tilo, an architect, who, although she is loved by three men, lives in a 'country of her own skin'. When Tilo claims an abandoned baby as her own, her destiny and that of Anjum become entangled as a tale that sweeps across the years and a teeming continent takes flight . . .

'Glorious, colourful and compelling. Roy's second novel proves as remarkable as her first' Financial Times

'The book filled me with awe. Propulsive, playful, gorgeous' New York Times Book Review

'The unmissable literary read of the summer. With its insights into human nature, its memorable characters and its luscious prose, Ministry is well worth the wait' Time

'Staggeringly beautiful - a fierce, fabulously disobedient novel. Roy is writing at the height of her powers. Urgent, intimate ecstatic' Boston Globe

'A searing portrait of modern India' Tatler

'This vast novel will leave you awed by the heat of its anger and the depth of its compassion' Washington Post
