A Burning

On the recommendation of my colleague, friend, and fellow Indophile Alex Tabarrok, I finally got around to reading Megha Majumdar’s debut novel “A Burning,” which revolves around a false criminal prosecution for terrorism and sedition. Here is the blog post by Professor Tabarrok that introduced me to this beautiful book, and here is an excerpt from Tabarrok’s post (link in the original): “What impressed me more was the less obvious commentary on social media, which is very relevant to the US. How does the pressure and potential of being seen by many others alter our choices? There are multiple mobs in A Burning; two of the mobs, one virtual, the other not, result in the brutal murders of innocent people, a third mob launches a star.” To the point, I wholeheartedly recommend “A Burning.”
