The White Tiger won the Man Booker Prize for fiction in 2008.  The story is narrated by  Balram,  the son of a rickshaw puller in India who escapes from the Darkness and becomes a  chauffeur for “The Stork”, a wealthy landlord. In a series of letters to the Premier of China, Balram justifies murdering his employer. 

Our discussion led to a comparison of  The White Tiger to The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid. The Reluctant Fundamentalist  takes place in Pakistan and is narrated by Changez, a young Pakistani.
