A Burning

By Megha Majumdar
Bookseller recommendation

A Burning

“A debut novel about contemporary India that manages to evoke the complexity of the forces that are shaking the country’s social structure. In fast-paced prose, the author tells of three people whose lives intersect around a court case. Jivan, a teenage girl from the city’s slums, is falsely accused of throwing a bomb at a train. Called to testify are her high school gym teacher, PT Sir, a man of conflicting morals, who is interested in getting into politics, and Lovely, a transgender woman who has dreams of becoming an actress and to whom Jivan was teaching English. As Jivan languishes in prison, PT Sir and Lovely concentrate on their own selfish interests, and there is a palpable sense of foreboding that made me want to yell at the two of them to help Jivan before it’s too late!”
