Selection Day

Description:
From the Man Booker prize-winning author of The White Tiger

'The most exciting novelist writing in English today.' A. N. Wilson

Manju is fourteen. He knows he is good at cricket - if not as good as his elder brother Radha. He knows that he hates his domineering and cricket-obsessed father, admires his brilliantly talented brother and is fascinated by CSI and curious and interesting scientific facts. But there are many things, about himself and about the world, that he doesn't know . . . Everyone around him, it seems, has a clear idea of who Manju should be, except Manju himself.

But when Manju begins to get to know Radha's great rival, a boy as privileged and confident as Manju is not, everything in Manju'a world begins to change and he is faced by decisions that will challenge both his sense of self and of the world around him.

As sensitively observed as The White Tiger (Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2008) was brilliantly furious, Selection Day reveals another facet of its author's remarkable talent.
