Arundhati Roy to release another piece of fiction after 20 years
New Delhi: 20 years after the grand success of her debut novel, Arundhati Roy is all set to get her second fiction book – Ministry of Utmost Happiness – published by Penguin India and Hamish Hamilton United Kingdom in June next.
It may be recalled that the author’s first novel called ‘God of Small Things’, which was released in 1997, won the Man Booker Prize for work of fiction.
Roy was focusing on political affairs in her writings since then. She had been covering issues from Maoist movement to capitalism. This is her second piece of fiction after God of Small Things.
“I feel glad to inform that the mad souls of my novel (Ministry of Utmost Happiness) are ready to step into the world as I have found my publishers,” said the award winning novelist while interacting with newsmen.
