SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE The stunning Booker Prize–winning novel from the author of Amnesty and Selection Day that critics have likened to Richard Wright’s Native Son, The White Tiger follows a darkly comic Bangalore driver through the poverty and corruption of modern India’s caste society. “This is the authentic voice of the Third World, like you've never heard it before” (John Burdett, Bangkok 8). The white tiger of this novel is Balram Halwai, a poor Indian villager whose great ambition leads him to the zenith of Indian business culture, the world of the Bangalore entrepreneur. On the occasion of the president of China’s impending trip to Bangalore, Balram writes a letter to him describing his transformation and his experience as driver and servant to a wealthy Indian family, which he thinks exemplifies the contradictions and complications of Indian society. Recalling The Death of Vishnu and Bangkok 8 in ambition, scope, The White Tiger is narrative genius with a mischief and personality all its own. Amoral, irreverent, deeply endearing, and utterly contemporary, this novel is an international publishing sensation—and a startling, provocative debut.

From the bestselling, Booker Prize-winning author of The White Tiger and Amnesty, a “ferociously brilliant” (Slate) novel about two brothers coming of age in a Mumbai slum, raised by their crazy, obsessive father to be cricket champions. *A NETFLIX ORIGINAL SERIES * AN NPR BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR * A NEW YORK TIMES and WASHINGTON POST NOTABLE BOOK Manjunath Kumar is fourteen and living in a slum in Mumbai. He knows he is good at cricket—if not as good as his older brother, Radha. He knows that he fears and resents his domineering and cricket-obsessed father, admires his brilliantly talented sibling, and is fascinated by curious scientific facts and the world of CSI. But there are many things, about himself and about the world, that he doesn’t know. Sometimes it even seems as though everyone has a clear idea of who Manju should be, except Manju himself. When Manju meets Radha’s great rival, a mysterious Muslim boy privileged and confident in all the ways Manju is not, everything in Manju’s world begins to change, and he is faced by decisions that will challenge his sense of self and of the world around him. Filled with unforgettable characters from across India’s social strata—the old scout everyone calls Tommy Sir; Anand Mehta, the big-dreaming investor; Sofia, a wealthy, beautiful girl and the boys’ biggest fan—Selection Day “brings a family, a city, and an entire country to scabrous and antic life” (Chicago Tribune).

It all began with a dream. A young woman saw a white tiger leap into her lap. It was both auspicious and unlucky -- her son, the fortune-teller said, would grow up with no brothers, and his father's health would be endangered by his birth. That son, however, would have a distinguished career, after going through many misfortunes and dangers. The dream was prophetic. The child was his mother's only male child and his father died of illness when the boy was only five. He grew up during the wartime and period of political turmoil in China, passing through many troubles, and he has had a very distinguished career. He is Yang Xianyi, renowned scholar, translator and interpreter of Chinese and Western literature. This delightful memoir of Yang Xianyi gives a candid and entertaining account of himself as a lighthearted and mischievous young man who immersed himself in the learning of European culture, ancient and modern, when he studied at Oxford in the 1930s. But it is also the illuminating self-portrait of a deeply patriotic intellectual living in a China under the throes of change, giving rare insight into the survival of a courageous, witty and principled individual during the harsh century of Chinese liberation.

In 1971, civil war raged in Tony Assali's home country of Lebanon. The oldest of five children, Tony had no choice but to come to America alone, establishing a foothold so that one day the rest of his family could join him. Thrilled, yet frightened at the same time, Tony knew it was up to him to make it with so many people depending on him.Luckily for Tony, all his life he possessed a special skill: the ability to perceive "White Tigers," rare and valuable opportunities other people either do not see or are too afraid to pursue. Using his powers of persuasion and relentless work ethic, Tony landed job after job, always with an eye on earning more money, to obtain the American dream.From humble beginnings working in a doughnut factory, Tony became the most sought-after waiter at a high-end restaurant; from there, he parlayed his charm into a position selling men's suits by the thousands. At the same time, he fulfilled his promise to his family, bringing all of his loved ones over, getting them jobs, and helping to establish lives for them in America.Never content to rest on past wins, Tony dared to dream bigger, originating the idea to sell hummus, a Mediterranean staple from his homeland, in American grocery stores across the US. This White Tiger caught on in a big way, making Tony a millionaire by the time he sold his food company in 1980s. Yet, still Tony hungered for more. He came out of semi-retirement to challenge himself once again selling meat door-to-door, just because he liked the thrill of closing. He sold so many items, shattering all of the company records, that the computer couldn't keep up with him. Yet, in spite of so many triumphs, Tony still hadn't found the White Tiger he was really looking for -- the right woman to make his life complete. After four marriages, Tony at last caught his White Tiger, the love of his life. The problem was, she was already married. Never the type of person to let an objection stop him, Tony found a way to land his ultimate White Tiger while creating his final economic empire, a lucrative real estate business in Sunny Orange County.
