Field Notes on Democracy: Listening to Grasshoppers

Arundhati Roy turns a critical eye on the fairytale of Indian democracy. In Field Notes on Democracy, she looks at several significant moments in India’s recent history. From the genocide in Gujarat, the lawless state of Kashmir, and the perversion of the Rule of Law in India’s Supreme Court, this collection is as diverse as it is engaging. Throughout, Roy casts aside the overblown triumphs of India’s growing upper and middle class to expose the underbelly of development. Loyal fans and newcomers alike will welcome Arundhati Roy as an eloquent and spirited guide through the realities of modern India.
