Product Details


“Unflinching. Unsentimental. Deeply moving. I loved it.”
— Kiran Desai, author of the Man Booker Prize-winning The Inheritance of Loss

“An impassioned plea for tolerance in a country rife with competing interests, this marvellous new novel by David Davidar follows a young man’s heroic love for his country. . . . The Solitude of Emperors refuses to counter the simplicity of fundamentalism with simplicity of answer.”
— Kiran Desai
