The White Tiger is the debut novel by Indian author Aravind Adiga. It was first published in 2008 and won the Man Booker Prize in the same year. The novel provides a darkly comical view of modern day life in India through the narration of its protagonist Balram Halwai. The main theme of the novel is the contrast between India's rise as a modern global economy and its working class people who live in crushing poverty. Other themes touched on include the corruption endemic to Indian society and politics, familial loyalty versus independence, religious tensions between Hindus and Muslims, the experience of returning to India after living in America, globalization, and the rivalry between India and China as superpower countries in Asia.
Excellent! Read it about ten years ago.

What a wonderful surprise!
Thank you so very much, ApoloniaX. I'd say your offer made my day, if getting to know you in person hadn't already done the job.
I'm under a bit of a mountain of books to read that must be sent to other BCers, before getting my hands on this one, but I'll do so as soon as I possibly can.
