5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating
Books on China probably outnumber those about India presently. In many respects what is happening in India is far more fascinating given its culture, history and politics. The book contains five `portraits' about five different people who have intriguing (and revalatory) stories to reveal about life in modern India. The quality of each of the (five) chapters may vary...

3.0 out of 5 stars If only
When I came across this in n+1 issue ten I took it for sleek, finely crafted satire; as fact it is simply too depressing to read

Amazon has attached the other two, five-star reviews to the Faber edition, not due till September

Arundhati Roy was never more needed

This review is from: The Beautiful and the Damned: Life in the New India (Paperback)
Books on China probably outnumber those about India presently. In many respects what is happening in India is far more fascinating given its culture, history and politics. The book contains five `portraits' about five different people who have intriguing (and revalatory) stories to reveal about life in modern India. The quality of each of the (five) chapters may vary somewhat but overall this is an insightful and revealing book. Highly recommended to anyone interested in the impact of globalisation on Asia.
