A Burning

Megha Majumdar

A Burning is an electrifying debut novel about three unforgettable characters who seek to rise—to the middle class, to political power, to fame in the movies—and find their lives entangled in the wake of a catastrophe in contemporary India. Megha Majumdar writes with dazzling assurance at a breakneck pace on complex themes that read like a thriller: class, fate, corruption, justice, and what it feels like to face profound obstacles while nurturing big dreams in a country spinning toward extremism.
