This is a beautiful copy that has been SIGNED by Kiran Desai on the title page! The true 1st edition of the author's debut - she is the daughter of Anita Desai. Her second book, The Inheritance of Loss, (2006) has been widely praised by critics throughout Asia, Europe and the United States and won the 2006 Man Booker Prize as well as the 2006 National Book Critics Circle Fiction Award. Written with rich humour and an eye for the eccentric, "Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard" is a magical tale of a world gone slightly mad. Dustjacket praise by Salman Rushdie who called it "Lush and intensely imagined. Welcome proof that India's encounter with the English language continues to give birth to new children, endowed with lavish gifts."
