Between The Assassinations by Aravind Adiga

Adiga's collection of short stories creates a portrait of Indian life as his finely tuned characters become vibrant individuals fighting against caste and class in a system designed to keep people firmly in their place. From a child who learns to beg in order to support her father's drug habit to the man too poor to offer for the woman he loves these stories capture the struggles of modern day India.
