Arundhati Roy to tour with her new novel: The Ministry of Utmost Happiness

Nearly 20 years after her first novel The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy returns June 6th with her much-anticipated second novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness.

“Sweeping, intricate, and sometimes topical, the novel’s complexity feels essential to Roy’s vision of a bewilderingly beautiful, contradictory, and broken world.”
