9780575082267: River of Gods
Quatrième de couverture :


August 15, 2047 - Happy Hundredth Birthday, India
As Mother India approaches her centenary, ten people are going about their business - a gangster, a cop, his wife, a politician, a stand-up comic, a set designer, a journalist, a scientist and a dropout. And so is Aj - the waif, the mind-reader, the prophet - when she one day finds a man who wants to stay hidden.
In the next few weeks, they will be swept together to decide the fate of the nation.
River of Gods teems with the life of a country choked with peoples and cultures - One and a half billion people, twelve semi-independent nations, nine million gods. Ian McDonald has written the great Indian novel of the new millennium, in which a war is fought, a love betrayed, a message from a different world decoded as the great river Ganges flows on.
'In terms of ideas, intellectual scope, detail, inventiveness, risk taking and sheer scale, McDonald's novel is one of the most ambitious I have read in recent years. It is also a staggering achievement . . . River of Gods is a brave, brilliant and wonderful novel' Christopher Priest, Guardian
'A triumphant panorama of mid-21st century India. Hugely adventurous and entertaining, sumptuously inventive and full of heart' Locus
'One hundred years after Midnight's Children and the nation were born while the nation slept … McDonald does it in style. It gathers pace quite superbly' Starburst
'A big, ambitious novel envisioning India's high-tech future which combines intelligent cynicism about the political realm with an idealism about ordinary people which avoids heroics' TIME OUT
