'Adiga is a novelist . . . one who has grown in his art since his Booker Prize-winning debut, The White Tiger.' Kamila Shamsie, Guardian
'Adiga is a real writer - that is to say, someone who forges an original voice and vision' Sunday Times
'The most exciting novelist writing in English today.' A. N. Wilson
'[Adiga] is not merely a confident storyteller but also a thinker, a skeptic, a wily entertainer, a thorn in the side of orthodoxy and cant . . . Adiga . . . displays what might be his greatest gifts as a postcolonial novelist: His strong sense of how the world actually works, and his ability to climb inside the minds of characters from vastly different social strata.' Dwight Garner in the New York Times
