''The magnificent new novel from the million-selling Booker Prize-winning author of The White Tiger: 'a kaleidoscopic portrait of a changing Mumbai' (Guardian Best Books of 2011). A suspense-filled story of money and power; luxury and deprivation; a rich tapestry peopled by unforgettable characters; not least of which is Bombay itself; LAST MAN IN TOWER opens up the hearts and minds of the inhabitants of a great city - ordinary people pushed to their limits in a place that knows none. ' LAST MAN IN TOWER is a brilliant; and remarkably mature; second novel. A rare achievement.' The Economist.'' This is the paperback publication of Aravind Adiga's second novel is; quite simply; Atlantic's biggest paperback of the year supported by its biggest ever marketing campaign. 21st Century Mumbai is a city of new money and soaring real estate; and property kingpin Dharmen Shah has grand plans for its future. His offer to buy and tear down a weathered tower block; making way for luxury apartments; will make each of its residents rich - if all agree to sell. But not everyone wants to leave; many of the residents have lived there for a lifetime; many of them are no longer young. As tensions rise among the once civil neighbours; one by one those who oppose the offer give way to the majority; until only one man stands in Shah's way: Masterji; a retired schoolteacher; once the most respected man in the building. Shah is a dangerous man to refuse; but as the demolition deadline looms; Masterji's neighbours - friends who have become enemies; acquaintances turned co-conspirators - may stop at nothing to score their payday...It is suitable for readers of Aravind Adiga's previous books; ''A Fine Balance'' by Rohinton Mistry and ''Q and A'' (''Slumdog Millionaire'') by Vikas Swarup.
