"Here's a strange fact: murder a man, and you feel responsible for his life - possessive, even." Meet Balram Halwai, the 'White Tiger' - servant, philosopher, entrepreneur and murderer. Born in a backwater village on the River Ganges, the son of a rickshaw puller, he works in a teashop, crushing coal and wiping tables, but nurses a dream of escape. When he learns that a rich village landlord needs a chauffeur, he takes his opportunity and is soon on his way to Delhi at the wheel of a Honda. Amid cockroaches, call-centres, 36 million gods, slums, shopping malls and crippling traffic jams, Balram comes to see how the Tiger might slip the bars of his cage. "Blazingly savage and brilliant" - Sunday Times. This début novel won the Man Booker Prize in 2008. With cutaway beautifully designed jacket, 2018 paperback reprint, 321pp.
