V romanu o Indijcih v času boja Nepalcev za neodvisnost spremljamo dve vzporedni zgodbi, ki se dogajata ena v vasici ob vznožju Himalaje in druga v Združenih državah. V prvi srečamo izobraženega, upokojenega sodnika, njegovo vnukinjo in kuharja, v drugi pa kuharjevega sina, ki je ilegalni priseljenec v New Yorku. Pred njimi se odvijajo zgodbe o migracijah, sovraštvu, predsodkih, ljubezni, spopadanju med posamezniki in narodi za prestiž, bogastvu, moči in prevladi. Ob vsakodnevni rutini, branju knjig in National Geographica se vsak od junakov v knjigi spominja svoje preteklosti in zgodb, ki so jih pripeljale do tega trenutka

Ji cheng shi luo de ren by Kiran Desai( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in Chinese and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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 from a world he has found too messy for justice, when his orphaned granddaughter, Sai, arrives on his doorstep. The judge's cook watches over her distractedly, for his thoughts are claimed by his son, Biju, who is hopscotching from one gritty New York restaurant to another, trying to stay a step ahead of the INS on an elusive search for a green card that 'was not even green.' When an Indian-Nepali insurgency in the mountains interrupts Sai's exploration of the many incarnations and facets of a romance with her Nepali tutor, and causes their lives to descend into chaos, they are forced to consider their colliding interests. The cook witnesses the hierarchy being overturned and discarded. The judge must revisit his past, his own journey and role in their intertwining histories"--Book jacket

Sampath Chawla is born into a family slightly off kilter, to a mother not quite like her neighbours, in a town not quite like other towns. After years of failure at school, failure at work, it does not seem as if Sampath is going to amount to much. Then Sampath climbs up a guava tree in search of a life of peaceful contemplation- and becomes unexpectedly famous as a hermit

La perte en héritage by Kiran Desai( Recording )

3 editions published in 2010 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Conflits communautaires, legs croisés ou contradictoires "de la colonisation anglaise et de la mondialisation". Second roman de l'auteure indienne qui entend parfaitement la voix des différentes castes, des différentes générations de son pays d'origine. Le roman alterne les chapitres qui se déroulent en Inde, dans une région proche du Népal, et ceux qui ont pour cadre le petit monde clandestin et industrieux des Indiens à New York. L'éditeur a raison d'ajouter que l'oeuvre est aussi le chant d'adieu à l'enfance d'une orpheline de seize ans contrainte de demander asile à un odieux grand-père juge, renfrogné et parfois sadique. Prix Man Booker, 2006. Descriptions explicites de nature sexuelle, descriptions régulières de violence et quelques passages où le langage est grossier. 2007, c2006

Dette er fortellingen om Sampath Chawla, en ung mann som er født inn i en familie utenom det vanlige. Etter år med doven skolegang, får han ansettelsepå det lokale postkontoret, der han hensleper sine dager på bakrommet og morer seg med å smuglese posten til byens innbyggere. Det later ikke til at det skal bli noe av døgenikten Sampath. Men en vakker dag tar Sampath spranget: han flykter fra livets kjas og mas, klatrer opp i et guavatre og bosetter seg der for å hengi seg til enslig, uforstyrret tankeflukt. Nysgjerrige tilskuere stiller seg opp i undring, og med sin kjennskap til brevene han har lest i årenes løp får Sampath med ett ry som allvitende guru! Kiran Desai er født i India i 1971, og er utdannet i India, England ogi USA. Hun har fått svært god omtale for boken i engelske aviser
