The Inheritance of Loss

Author(s): Kiran Desai

Literary Fiction

This year�s Booker winner is �a magnificent novel of humane breadth and wisdom, comic tenderness and powerful political acuteness�, said the judges. Set partly in the Himalayas, it stars characters as diverse as a cantankerous judge, his orphaned granddaughter, the Nepali insurgent who loves her, a red setter, and a cook on the run from US Immigration. �Briskly paced and sumptuously written . . . moving and revelatory.� � The New Yorker.
