'Adiga's novel takes in class, religion and sexuality - all issues that disrupt the dream of a sport that cares for nothing but talent and temperament. Because Adiga is a novelist, and one who has grown in his art since his Booker prizewinning debut, THE WHITE TIGER, he knows how to talk about all these matters through his characters and their compelling stories.'
'Finely told, often moving and intelligent novel'
