review 1: Significant in that Roy puts forth an account of the Naxalites, a notoriously (for good reason) difficult subject for anyone to gain access too. She's also a decent writer (with fiction work as well), which makes this a one-day kind of read. However, she also drops the ball on ...

review 1: Roy is brilliant and thought provoking.Great creative prose and unadulterated feeling shines through. Those who don't grok her style will be left wondering a little.This, I feel, is not a book that focuses on dry discourse of facts and detached reporting. She pours her heart, sou...

review 1: About three years ago, my family and I visited India, the country of my birth in the middle of my freshman year in high school. Carrying my backpack filled with textbooks and schoolwork through the crowded, air-conditioned Mumbai airport, I was not happy. When I finally walked ou...
