Nearly 20 years after her first novel The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy returns with her much-anticipated second novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness. Her writing in the intervening time has included thought-provoking nonfiction in subjects such as politics, activism, and investigation. Roy’s new novel shifts between moods and time frames, first-person and omniscient narration.

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