Selection Day by Aravind Adiga

Booker-prize winner Aravind Adiga is back with his new book, a fascinating, moving and heartening page-turner Selection Day based on cricketing-world in Mumbai.

The story is about 14-year-old Manjunath Kumar, a promising cricketer. He is scared of his domineering and cricket-obsessed father. He respects his elder brother Radha who is also a brilliant cricketer and is captivated by the world of CSI and hooked with scientific facts. However, Manjunath’s biggest problem is that everyone has an opinion about him, what he should do and no one cares his own opinion about himself.

The story came to an unexpected turn when Manju “begins to get to know Radha’s great rival, a boy as privileged and confident as Manju is not, everything in Manju’s world begins to change and he is faced with decisions that will challenge both his sense of self and of the world around him”.

Grab this captivating book of human ambition, originality, sacrifice and unexpected storyline.
