9780552775359: Q & A: Slumdog Millionaire
Revue de presse :

"'This brilliant story, as colossal, vibrant and chaotic as India itself ... is not to be missed.'" ( Observer)

"Q&A is popular fiction at its best and brightest. The prose is efficient and the characters are briskly drawn in strong, sharp colours. Swarup clearly understands his job. As an exercise in genre, the novel is a triumph and that was before the movie-makers got to work." (Robert McCrum Guardian)

"'An inspired idea ...a broad and sympathetic humanity underpins this book.'" ( SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

"'Not simply the story of a quiz, but rather a reminder of the various often apparently random, ways in which knowledge can be acquired by the adventurous, the curious and the observant ... Swarup is an accomplished storyteller.'" ( Daily Mail)

" Q&A is a poignant, funny, rich, beautifully written novel with an utterly original and brilliant structure at its heart. A rare joy." ( Meg Rosoff, author of How I Live Now)

Présentation de l'éditeur :

The book behind the multi-Oscar-winning film, SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, directed by Danny Boyle

Former tiffinboy Ram Mohammad Thomas has just got twelve questions correct on a TV quiz-show to win a cool one billion rupees. But he is brutally slung in prison on suspicion of cheating. Because how can a kid from the slums know who Shakespeare was, unless he is cheating.

In the order of the questions on the show, Ram tells us which amazing adventures in his street-kid life gave him the answers. From orphanages to brothels, gangsters to beggar-masters, and into the homes of Bollywood's rich and famous, Ram's story is brimming with the chaotic comedy, heart-stopping tragedy and tear-inducing joyousness of modern India.
