Discover the best in new contemporary fiction. This month we will discuss The Ministry of Utmost Happiness by Arundhati Roy.

A love story that unfolds in a world being transformed by migration. In a country on the brink of civil war, two young people meet: sensual, independent Nadia and gentle, restrained Saeed. They embark on a furtive love affair, thrust into premature intimacy by the unrest roiling their city. When it explodes, turning familiar streets into a patchwork of checkpoints and bomb blasts, they begin to hear whispers about doors--doors that can whisk people far away, if perilously and for a price. As violence and the threat of violence escalate, Nadia and Saeed decide that they no longer have a choice. Leaving their homeland and their old lives behind, they find a door and step through.
