Книга: Vikas Swarup «Slumdog Millionaire»

Slumdog Millionaire

A former tiffinboy from Mumbai, Ram Mohammad Thomas, has just got twelve questions correct on a TV quiz show to win a cool one billion rupees. But he is brutally slung in a prison cell on suspicion of cheating. Because how can a kid from the slums know who Shakespeare was unless he has been pulling a fast one? In the order of the questions on the show, Ram tells us which amazing adventures in his street-kid life taught him the answers. From orphanages to brothels, gangsters to beggar-masters, and into the homes of Bollywood's rich and famous, "Slumdog Millionaire" is brimming with the chaotic comedy, heart-stopping tragedy, and tear-inducing joyfulness of modern India. Формат: 10, 5 см х 18 см.
