321 pp. Light general and edgewear (creases) to illustrated covers. Edges of text block a little scuffed and faintly yellowed. Internally unmarked; solidly bound. Winner of the 2008 Man Booker Prize. "At first, this novel seems like a straightforward pulled-up-by-your bootstraps tale, albeit given a dazzling twist by the narrator's sharp and satirical eye for the realities of life for India's poor. But as the narrative draws the reader further in, and darkens, it becomes clear that Adiga is playing a bigger game."
