This Booker Prize-winning novel is a sharp-witted and confronting political satire set in the liminal space between Sri Lanka of the 1990s and the afterlife. Murderer photojournalist Maali Almeida has seven moons to attend to any unfinished business (including finding out who murdered him), before he must move towards the Light or forever be condemned to exist in limbo. Powerful, disturbing, brave writing.
