Waiting on Wednesday: Last Man in Tower

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I can't wait to get my hands on Last Man in Tower by Aravind Adiga.  This sucker comes out in September - woot!

Goodreads Summary:
A tale of one man refusing to leave his home in the face of property development. Tower A is a relic from a co-operative housing society established in the 1950s. When a property developer offers to buy out the residents for eye-watering sums, the principled yet arrogant teacher is the only one to refuse the offer, determined not to surrender his sentimental attachment to his home and his right to live in it, in the name of greed. His neighbors gradually relinquish any similar qualms they might have and, in a typically blunt satirical premise take matters into their own hands, determined to seize their slice of the new Mumbai as it transforms from stinky slum to silvery skyscrapers at dizzying, almost gravity-defying speed.


  1. Interesting choice! :)

  2. What a bright cover :) This sounds like an interesting read!

    Come on over and see my WOW for this week.

  3. Me too! I'm eager for this one to be published.
