Balram Halwai is the White Tiger – the smartest boy in his village. His family is too poor for him to afford for him to finish school and he has to work in a teashop, breaking coals and wiping tables. But Balram gets his break when a rich man hires him as a chauffeur, and takes him to live in Delhi. The city is a revelation. As he drives his master to shopping malls and call centres, Balram becomes increasingly aware of immense wealth and opportunity all around him, while knowing that he will never be able to gain access to that world.

Sein erster Roman The White Tiger (deutsch: Der weiße Tiger) gewann 2008 den Booker Prize. „Darkly comic…Balram’s appealingly sardonic voice and acute observations of the social order are both winning and unsettling.“ (The New Yorker) (1.605 Rezensionen / 4,3 Sterne), 292 Seiten noch günstig?
