The novel won the prestigious Man Booker Prize for Fiction in 2008.

It was also a New York Times bestseller, tallying over ½ a million sales, and has since been translated into more than 30 languages. Director John Harts (Boys Dont Cry, You Can Count on Me) newly formed Smuggler Films has acquired rights to The White Tiger as its 1st project.BOOK EXCERPTFrom the Major Themes section:At the beginning of the novel, Balram mentions to the Premier that China is the only nation he admires besides Afghanistan and Abyssinia.

Why? Because he read in a book called Exciting Tales of the Exotic East that these are the only 3 countries never to be ruled by outsiders. He dubs China the “freedom-loving nation,” a place that has never been subject to a master-slave relationship with the West. But although he hears on All India Radio that “you Chinese are far ahead of us in every respect,” Balram observes that China does not have entrepreneurs – hence the Premiers visit to Bangalore.China, then, becomes a foil to India, which he describes as a nation with “no drinking water, electricity, sewage, public transportation …” but chock full of entrepreneurs.

For this reason, Balram tells the Premier his story, believing that China and India are destined to become the next great superpowers. “In 20 years time, it will just be us brown and yellow men at the top of the pyramid, and well rule the whole world.”Quicklets: Learn More.
