ISBN: 9780241303979 (hbk.) :
'The Ministry of Utmost Happiness' transports us across a subcontinent on a journey of many years. It takes us deep into the lives of its gloriously rendered characters, each of them in search of a place of safety - in search of meaning, and of love.
445 pages ; 22 cm
Once you realise that there is no real story, it is a lovely read. Beautiful prose and a cast of many, many characters who are all drawn beautifully. I learned a lot about Indian/Kashmirian politics and more than I wanted about the cruelties we inflict on one another in the name of war. An epic challenging read.
