Title The hope factory : a novel / Lavanya Sankaran.
Author Sankaran, Lavanya.
Summary "With humor, intelligence, and masterly prose, Lavanya Sankarans debut novel brilliantly captures the vitality and danger of a newly industrialized city and how it shapes the dreams and aspirations of two very different families. Anand is a Bangalore success story: successful, well married, rich. At least, thats how he appears. But if his little factory is to grow, he needs land and money, and, in the New India, neither of these is easy to find. Kamala, Anands familys maid, lives perilously close to the edge of disaster. She and her clever teenage son have almost nothing, and their small hopes for self-betterment depend on the contentment of Anands wife: a woman to whom whims come easily. But Kamalas son keeps bad company, and Anands marriage is in trouble. The murky world where crime and land and politics meet is a dangerous place for a good man, particularly one on whom the well-being of so many depends." --
