Welcome to Kittur, India. Of its 193,432 residents, only 89 declare themselves to be without religion or caste. And if the characters in Between the Assassinations are any indication, Kittur is an extraordinary crossroads between the brightest minds and the poorest morals, the up-and-coming and the downtrodden, and the poets and the prophets of an India that modern literature has rarely addressed.

A series of sketches that together form a blinding, brilliant, and brave mosaic of Indian life as it is lived in a place called Kittur, Between the Assassinations, with all the humor, sympathy, and unflinching candor of The White Tiger, enlarges our understanding of the world we live in today.

  1. Ashish Ghosh (Verified Purchase)

    Essentially a collection of short stories, so does not reflect previous books, however it is well written.

  2. Puja Sardar (Verified Purchase)

    Definitely not white tiger but still a very good read. You will enjoy reading it especially if you don’t keep unrealistic expectations.

  3. Parbati Mandal (Verified Purchase)

    Delightful description of characters, sights and stories of small town in south India. Quite melancholic though. Read all by the author but White Tiger definitely the best

  4. Balaji S (Verified Purchase)

    The title of this book refers to the time between the assasination of Indian Prime Minister Indira Ghandi in 1984 and the assasination of her son and successor, Rajiv Ghandi, in 1991. The substance of the book is a tourist guidebook to a fictional Indian town, interspersed within a collection of short stories. Each chapter is independent from the next, though they share the geography of the town and its environs.
