This beautiful copy of "The Ministry of Utmost Happiness" has been SIGNED by Arundhati Roy on the title page! From the Booker Prize-winning author of "The God of Small Things." This title was longlisted for the 2017 MAN/Booker Prize as well. This novel takes us on an intimate journey of many years across the Indian subcontinent--from the cramped neighborhoods of Old Delhi and the roads of the new city to the mountains and valleys of Kashmir and beyond, where war is eace and peace is war. As this ravishing, deeply humane novel braids these richly complex lives together, it reinvents what a novel can do and can be. "The Ministry of Utmost Happiness" demonstrates on every page the miracle of Arundhati Roy's storytelling gifts. In this era of cheaply produced books - it deserves mention that the Publisher has put together a higher quality volume in this instance.
