Kiran Desai, Winner of the 2006 Man Booker Prize for The Inheiritance of Loss
Kiran Desai is the author of Hullaballo in the Guava Orchard, which critics praised for its prose and the potential of its author. Eight years later, she published The Inheiritance of Loss, an extraordinary novel that explores, with intimacy and insight, nearly every contemporary international issue: globalisation, multiculturalism, economic inequality, fundamentalism and terrorist violence.
