Description: In her novel The God Of Small Things, Arundhati Roy -- with a great heart but an unrelenting eye -- drew the unforgettable portrait of one family in India. Now she lavishes the same acrobatic language and fierce humanity on the future of her beloved country. In this spirited polemic, Arundhati Roy dares to take on two of the great illusions of India's progress: the massive dam projects which were supposed to haul this sprawling subcontinent into the modern age, but which instead have displaced untold millions, and the detonation of India's first nuclear bomb, with all its attendant Faustian bargains. Merging her inimitable voice with the moral outrage, imaginative sweep and narrative gifts of a Dickens, Roy peels away the mask of democracy and prosperity to show the true costs hidden beneath. For those who have been mesmerized by her fictional vision of India, here is a sketch -- traced in fire -- of its topsy-turvy society, where the lives of the many are sacrificed for the comforts of the few.
