'Razor-sharp, passionate' Sunday Times
'The essays in Listening to Grasshoppers are hand grenades' Observer
Could it be that democracy, the sacred answer to our short-term hopes and prayers, the protector of our individual freedoms and nurturer of our avaricious dreams, will turn out to be the endgame for the human race?
In eleven powerful, and often shocking, linked essays, Booker-prize winning novelist Arundhati Roy examines democracy's greatest experiment - India - and shows how the West's rose-tinted view often refuses to acknowledge a dark underbelly of corruption, lies and mass murder.
'The kind of passionate and unguarded read that makes a writer serious enemies' Scotland on Sunday
'After so much celebratory salesmanship about India the 'emerging market', Roy draws us into India the actual country, peeling away the gloss. She is one of the most confident and original thinkers of our time' Naomi Klein
'Searing, painful, chilling' Noam Chomsky
'The fierceness with which Arundhati Roy loves humanity moves my heart' Alice Walker
'Arundhati Roy resists and denounces all tyrannies, pleads for their victims, and unflinchingly questions the tragic. Reflect with her on the answers she receives from the political world today' John Berger
Arundhati Roy is the author of the novel The God of Small Things, for which she was awarded the Booker Prize in 1997, and two collections of essays: The Algebra of Infinite Justice and An Ordinary Person's Guide to Empire. She lives in New Delhi, India.
