Bowled Over by Mumbai
The last debut novelist to win the Man Booker Prize (in 2008 with White Tiger), Aravind Adiga now brings us Selection Day, widely held to be even better. He comes to the Festival today to tell us about his story of two Mumbai brothers who are pushed by their domineering father to be cricket stars, and how he has brilliantly used the game as a way of taking the pulse of modern India – corruption and all. Chaired by Daniel Hahn.
