Book Club's Selection for January

'Last Man In Tower'

Image of the front cover of Man Booker prize-winning author Aravind Adiga's novel Last Man In TowerAravind Adiga, winner of the Man Booker prize for The White Tiger, is back with another biting, insightful novel about the desire for power and money, and how this impacts people and their relationships.

When the residents of a crumbling apartment building are given a lucrative buyout offer by the ambitious developer Dharmen Shah, they all leap at the offer — except for retired schoolteacher Masterji. With the demolition deadline looming, friendships turn into alliances and relationships turn around conspiracies in this suspenseful, humorous story.
