ABOUT THE BOOK

The present book makes an attempt to examine representations of postcolonial India in four Booker Prize winning novels: Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children , Arundhati Roy's The God of Small Things, Kiran Desai's The Inheritance of Loss and Aravind Adiga's The White Tiger. Awards and prizes are a quick and effective means of canonization. The Prize bestows instant credibility on a writer, and ensures high book sales. Such books also generate a large body of criticism. The Booker Prize novels foreground four aspects of postcolonial India that had hitherto not been represented in the Indian English novel. These aspects are the focus of the present book.
