The second novel by the Booker Prize-winning, million-copy-selling author of The White Tiger is Atlantic's biggest paperback of 2012 and will be supported by its biggest ever marketing campaign.
Aravind Adiga was born in Madras in 1974. He studied at Columbia and Oxford universities. A former India correspondent for Time magazine, his articles have also appeared in publications including the Financial Times, Independent and the Sunday Times. His first novel, The White Tiger, won the Man Booker Prize in 2008 and was shortlisted for the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize, as was his short-story collection Between the Assassinations (2009).
Praise for "Last Man in Tower""Formally daring, panoramic in sweep, and fearless in its forays into disparate characters, not the least being Bombay, city of sensual amplitude. . . . Equally stunning is the melancholy that underlies the narrative bustle, and the many moments of sweetness. Adiga's voice, an arresting blend of angry advocacy and mature wisdom, is fully formed." "--National Post""You simply do not realize how anemic most contemporary fiction is until you read Adiga's muscular prose. His plots don't unwind, they surge. . . . Just brilliant." ""--"USA Today"
