A Waterstones Exclusive Interview with Arundhati Roy

Posted on 31st July 2017 by Martha Greengrass
Twenty years Arundhati Roy’s The God of Small Things made publishing history, scooping a Man Booker Prize in the process. Now Roy is back with The Ministry of Utmost Happiness and another shot at Booker success, will she make it a double?
In an exclusive interview, we talk to Roy about that early success, what motivates her to write and why the caste system that dominates Indian culture is just one of the ways in which labels can control and restrict us.

It takes us deep into the lives of its gloriously rendered characters, each of them in search of a place of safety— in search of meaning, and of love. ‘This intimate epic about India over the past two decades is superb’ - The Sunday Telegraph
