Absolutely engrossing, acutely pinpointing the aspirational tragic-comic ironies of modern India (The Times)
In The Beautiful and the Damned Siddhartha Deb has taken up Naipaul's mantle. Five scenes from the new India are subjected to his sharp yet sympathetic eye . . . A beautiful book about the damned(Sunday Telegraph)
Startlingly intelligent . . . Deb is quickened by his extraordinary feeling for the texture of lower middle-class life, as well as his unerring sensitivity to the way a country yet again transforms itself (Amit Chaudhuri Guardian)
A brilliant and sensitive book that succeeds in shifting our gaze from the dazzling glass and steel towers of the business park to the collateral damage suffered by people caught in the age-old tensions between economic mirage, constricting cultural tradition and overbearing social expectation (Sunday Times)
