A great tempest of a novel. . . . Will leave you awed. -- The Washington Post

"Staggeringly beautiful. . . . Once a decade, if we are lucky, a novel emerges from the cinder pit of living that asks the urgent question of our global era. . . . Roy's novel is this decade's ecstatic and necessary answer." -- The Boston Globe

"Powerful and moving. . . . Infused with so much passion--political, social, emotional--that it vibrates. It may leave you shaking, too." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"Magisterial. . . . The Ministry of Utmost Happiness works its empathetic magic upon a breathtakingly broad slate." -- O, The Oprah Magazine

"A fiercely unforgettable novel about gender, terrorism, Indian's caste system, corruption and politics. . . . A love story with characters so heartbreaking and compelling they sear themselves into the reader's brain." -- USA Today

"A lustrously braided and populated tale." -- Vanity Fair

"Roy's second novel proves as remarkable as her first. . . . Through [the characters'] archetypal interactions, juxtaposed with Roy's glorious social details, you will have been granted a powerful sense of their world, of the complexity, energy and diversity of contemporary India." -- Financial Times

"Epic in scale, but intimately human in its concerns, the long-awaited story dazzles with its kaleidoscopic narrative approach and unforgettable characters." -- Elle
