Описание: Vikas Swarup's page-turning novel about an impoverished Indian waiter who stuns the world by correctly answering all twelve questions on a television quiz show. Now with movie-tie-in art, Slumdog Millionaire is a beautifully written, clever novel and "readers will consider themselves winners after spending time in the world of this very rich tale" (The Washington Post Book World). A beguiling blend of high comedy and poignancy, Vikas Swarup has created a kaleidoscopic vision of modern India, the struggle of good against evil, and what happens when one boy has no other choice in life but to survive. Directed by Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, A Life Less Ordinary, and 28 Days Later) and distributed by Fox Searchlight Pictures--the indie studio that made Little Miss Sunshine a hit--Slumdog Millionaire is taking the festival circuit by storm. In its coverage of the Telluride Film Festival, Variety said, "the runaway smash was Danny Boyle's exhilarating, madly entertaining drama Slumdog Millionaire." The Wall Street Journal film critic Joe Morgenstern said the film "takes us to a level that tops the Rockies for heightened experience. An amalgam of Oliver Twist, The Three Musketeers, and Bollywood extravaganza...there's never been anything like this densely detailed phantasmagoria--groundbreaking in substance, damned near earth-shaking in style."

Описание: Vicky Rai, the playboy son of a prominent Indian Cabinet minister has been shot dead by persons unknown at his farmhouse (No. 6) outside Delhi. Six people
were partying at his house immediately preceding his death - each one equally liable to have pulled the trigger.
In this elaborate mystery reminiscent of Agatha Christie, we the
readers are the detectives, as six suspects' lives unravel before our eyes - a bureaucrat, a cannibal, an idiot, an actress, a politician, and a nobody. Each character has their own
chapter, three times over, the first being under Suspects; the second under Motives; the third - when all is revealed - under Evidence. Vikas Swarup's finely schematic and audacious
plotting will delight the many fans of his acclaimed "Q&A."

Описание: Vikas Swarup's spectacular debut novel opens in a jail cell in Mumbai, India, where Ram Mohammad Thomas is being held after correctly answering all twelve questions on India's biggest quiz show, "Who Will Win a Billion?" It is hard to believe that a poor orphan who has never read a newspaper or gone to school could win such a contest. But through a series of exhilarating tales Ram explains to his lawyer how episodes in his life gave him the answer to each question.
Ram takes us on an amazing review of his own history -- from the day he was found as a baby in the clothes donation box of a Delhi church to his employment by a faded Bollywood star to his adventure with a security-crazed Australian army colonel to his career as an overly creative tour guide at the Taj Mahal.
Swarup's "Q & A" is a beguiling blend of high comedy, drama, and romance that reveals how we know what we know -- not just about trivia, but about life itself. Cutting across humanity in all its squalor and glory, Vikas Swarup presents a kaleidoscopic vision of the struggle between good and evil -- and what happens when one boy has no other choice in life but to survive.
