Description

About The Book

Twenty years ago, Arundhati Roy wrote her Booker Prize-winning novel The God of Small Things, which went on to become one of the best loved books of our time. June 2017 will see Roy's return to fiction with her new novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness. 'How to tell a shattered story? By slowly becoming everybody. No. By slowly becoming everything.' In a city graveyard a resident unrolls a threadbare Persian carpet between two graves- 'As a private joke, never the same two on consecutive nights.' On a concrete sidewalk a baby appears quite suddenly, a little after midnight, in a crib of litter- 'No angels sang, no wise men brought gifts, but a million stars appeared in the east to herald her arrival.' In a snowy valley, where tombstones grew through the ground like young children's teeth, a father writes to his five-year-old daughter about the number of people that attended her funeral- 'How shall I explain one hundred thousand to you? You who could only count to fifty-nine? Shall we try and think about it seasonally? In spring, think of how many red poppies blossom in the meadows.'
