Sebald Lecture 2018: Arundhati Roy
Novelist and activist Arundhati Roy won the Booker Prize in 1997 with The God of Small Things, which has been translated into more than 40 languages. Since then Roy has published several works of non-fiction, including The Algebra of Infinite Justice, Listening to Grasshoppers and Broken Republic. Her second novel, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, was longlisted for the Man Booker Prize for Fiction in 2017 and described by the judges as “a rich and vital book” that has “remarkable scale” and “extraordinary style and intelligence”.
