Overview

This book presents a detailed study of four Booker Prize winning novels written by Indian novelists. 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 have won the prestigious Man Booker Prize in the last three decades. There is a unique kind of thematic delineation in these novels. Constant human struggle in the vast panorama of human existence, changing social, political and anthropological scenario, a growing sense of globalization, cross-culturalism, modern diseases like bewilderment, anxiety, aimlessness, etc., from which human beings suffer a lot and. a sense of compassion are visible in these novels everywhere. All these things provide epic dimension and broad field of study to the scholars. The present study, based more on texts and less on critical remarks, analyzes above-mentioned features of these novels in detail.
