Shaheen Kahn brings a warm, impassioned narration to Arundhati Roy's searing essays about the rise of Hindu nationalism in India. She picks up on the steady criticism laced throughout the collection and alternates with a steely softness for Roy's introspective moments. From readers' complaints about her writing in English to taking up the Kashmiri cause, Kahn gives us the author's emotional tenor throughout. For fans of Roy's fiction, this is a personal glimpse of her politics, as well as far-ranging thoughts about a variety of subjects. Those who are interested in current events on the Indian subcontinent will find this a rich and varied title they can listen to sequentially or topically.
