In his new, long-awaited novel, Shashi Tharoor, the acclaimed author of The Great Indian Novel and Show Business, whom the Independent (London) called "one of the finest novelists writing in English today", once again experiments masterfully with narrative form. The story revolves around a young American volunteer in India and the mystery surrounding the circumstances of her death. Like the Japanese classic Rashomon, in RIOT there are disturbingly different versions of the events, and everyone is convinced they hold the truth. In plot, style, and characterization, Shashi Tharoor's latest novel is a brilliant tour de force.
