Краткое описание

Last Man in Tower.

(Named a Best Book of the Year by the Boston Globe, Richmond Times-Dispatch, and the Daily Beast) The Booker Prize–winning author of The White Tiger returns with this stunning novel of greed and murder in contemporary Mumbai. At the center of the story are two compelling men: real estate developer Dharmen Shah has created a commercial empire and plans to seal his legacy with a luxury high-rise named the Shanghai. He is a dangerous man to refuse, yet he meets his unlikely match in one of his tenants, a retired schoolteacher named Masterji. Even when Shah offers a generous buyout to the residents of the once respectable, now crumbling apartment building, Masterji refuses to abandon his longtime home. Neighbors become enemies and acquaintances turn into conspirators, ready to risk their humanity in their hunger for Shah's money, in Aravind Adiga's richly told tale of ordinary people pushed to their limits."A rare achievement.... Adiga captures with heartbreaking authenticity the real struggle in Indian cities, which is for dignity. A funny yet deeply melancholic work, Last Man in Tower is a brilliant, and remarkably mature, second novel."—Economist (London)"Provocative and decadent.... The kind of novel that's so richly insightful ... it's hard to know where to begin singing its praises.... Vain, shrewd and stubborn, [Masterji] is one of the most delightfully contradictory characters to appear in recent fiction."—Washington Post
