Arundhati Roy’s latest work of fiction, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, has made it to the longlist of this year’s Man Booker Prize.

The book came after a 19-year-long hiatus since the author’s debut novel God of Small Things, that won the Booker Prize in 1997. The judges described the book as “a rich and vital book” that “comes from the bowels of India” and has “remarkable scale” and “extraordinary style and intelligence”.
