Forlagets beskrivelse
In a crumbling, isolated house at the foot of Mount Kanchenjunga in the Himalayas lives an embittered judge who wants only to retire in peace, when his orphaned granddaughter, Sai, arrives on his doorstep. The judge?s cook watches over her distractedly, for his thoughts are often on his son, Biju, who is hopscotching from one gritty New York restaurant to another. Kiran Desai?s brilliant novel, published to huge acclaim, is a story of joy and despair. Her characters face numerous choices that majestically illuminate the consequences of colonialism as it collides with the modern world.
Bibliotekernes beskrivelse

Midt mellem tre og fire stjerner. Man følger livet i et liille hus ved foden af Himmalaya samtidig med, man følger kokkens søn i USA, der prøver at blive integreret. Man bliver af det stille tempo, bogen foregår i. Der er stridgheder mellem Indien og Nepal og det rammer også beboerne i det lille hus. Jeg kom til at holde af kokken, der hele tiden sagde en masse, der tit vær ævl, men i modsæting til dommeren, var han interesret i folk omkring ham.
