Don’t miss Arundhati Roy, author of The God of Small Things and The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, in Cape Town
More about the book!
‘She knew he’d be back. No matter how elaborate its charade, she recognized loneliness when she saw it. She sensed that in some strange tangential way, he needed her shade as much as she needed his. And she had learned from experience that Need was a warehouse that could accommodate a considerable amount of cruelty.’ ― Arundhati Roy, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness
Penguin Random House and the University of Cape Town invite you to an evening with Arundhati Roy.
Roy is the author of the Booker Prize-winning novel The God of Small Things and, most recently, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness.

She lives in New Delhi.
