About this item
Aravind Adiga's THE WHITE TIGER and his uncouth and murderous narrator completely shatter the exotic picture of India that has become a mainstay of literature for the last 50 years. Belram Halwai is an uneducated and violent denizen of India's bottom caste who manages to scrap and crawl his way to success as a chauffer, even if it means killing some of his elitist employers along the way. Filled with the crackling energy and violence of TAXI DRIVER, this novel exposes the sordid underbelly and vile class system of modern India. THE WHITE TIGER won the Man Booker Prize in 2008, making Adiga, 33, one of the youngest authors to win the prestigious prize.
