Arundhati Roy: "The Ministry of Extreme Happiness" / LiZ / DAI Heidelberg

Arundhati Roy achieved an international breakthrough with the novel "The God of Small Things". That was exactly twenty years ago. In the past ten years, the activist has devoted herself above all to her humanitarian commitment - she has criticised political exclusion, India's nuclear armament and Hindu nationalism, for example. And she wrote a new novel, which she presented in Heidelberg just a few weeks after its publication. "The Ministry of Extreme Happiness" takes its readers to the most unlikely place to find happiness: the cemetery of Old Delhi. Here, social outsiders gather in a hostel to comfort and raise each other up. A novel full of joie de vivre, in which generosity and resistance form a counterweight to fanaticism and violence.
