Nestling on India's southern coast lies the town of Kittur. Ranging through the city's streets and schoolyards, bedrooms and businesses, its inner workings and its outer limits, through the myriad and distinctive voices of its inhabitants, Aravind Adiga brings an entire world vividly and unforgettably to life.

'Weaving together characters from a variety of castes, religions and backgrounds to give a textured and intimate sense of the exhausting complexity of Indian life and its stifling social attitudes with a dark and smutty sense of humour. [Adiga's] direct, low-key and accessible prose is his great strength, producing pithy stark images.' Evening Standard 'As in The White Tiger, the joy of reading Between the Assassinations derives from the life he breathes into his characters... They are fraught with conflicting desires that time after time end in violence, madness or stifling frustration... Adiga displays the full range of his imagination. This is fiction at its most ambitious and incisive and every bit as impressive as his debut.' Telegraph 'Between the Assassinations is a work of many voices... always lively and keenly observed. Kittur is intended as a microcosm of India.' Sunday Times

Aravind Adiga was born in Madras in 1974. He studied at Columbia and Oxford Universities. His first novel, The White Tiger, won the Man Booker Prize for 2008.
