Spring/Summer '09 Reading Group List

“Balram Halwai, living in contemporary India, is a man with aspirations and dreams he fears will never be realized considering his current position as a chauffeur and servant of the wealthy in a society with an absurdly large gap between rich and poor. As he takes it upon himself to rise above the muck in a series of unethical and criminal actions, The White Tiger will challenge your concepts of right and wrong and make you feel guilty for laughing along the way.”
— Jon Stich, DIESEL, A Bookstore, Oakland, CA

Fall '09/Winter '10 Reading Group List

“Balram Halwai narrates his tale through letters written to the Premier of China over a seven-day period and tells the story of how he climbed out of poverty and into the life of a successful entrepreneur. In telling his story, The White Tiger opens a window onto the chaos and inequality of Indian society.”
— Cynthia, Paulina Springs Books, Sisters, OR


This rambunctious story of contemporary India shows how religion doesn't create morality, and money doesn't solve every problem--but a person can get what he wants out of life by eavesdropping on the right conversations.
