The Inheritance of Loss

Author(s): Kiran Desai

Literary Fiction

This yearâÂÂs Booker winner is âÂÂa magnificent novel of humane breadth and wisdom, comic tenderness and powerful political acutenessâÂÂ, said the judges. Set partly in the Himalayas, it stars characters as diverse as a cantankerous judge, his orphaned granddaughter, the Nepali insurgent who loves her, a red setter, and a cook on the run from US Immigration. âÂÂBriskly paced and sumptuously written . . . moving and revelatory.â â The New Yorker.
