'At magic hour; when the sun has gone but the light has not, armies of flying foxes unhinge themselves from the Banyan trees in the old graveyard and drift across the city like smoke . . .'

Arundhati Roy's latest novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, picks up where The God of Small Things left off. The story begins with Anjum, formerly known as Aftab, who runs a guest house in an Old Delhi graveyard and takes in those who have nowhere else to go. We also meet Tilo, an architect, who despite being loved by three men, feels isolated in her own skin. When Tilo adopts an abandoned baby, her life becomes intertwined with Anjum's in a tale that spans years and a vast continent. Roy's storytelling is masterful, and her characters are vividly drawn. This book is an unforgettable journey that will leave you breathless. Purchase your copy of The Ministry of Utmost Happiness today.
