Last Man in Tower is another masterpiece on modern India from the Booker Prize winning author Aravind Adiga. The tremendous growth in India has lead to deep inequities and anger and Adiga capitalizes on that for his stories.

It felt like this surprise gift that he unwrapped layer by layer till I discovered the core of it.
