Arundhati Roy’s Second Novel Comes Out June 2017

Booker Prize winner Arundhati Roy’s new novel will be published by Hamish Hamilton, an imprint of Penguin Random House, in the UK in June 2017, her UK publisher Simon Prosser tweeted today. More details of the book, titled The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, are awaited. Penguin Random House will publish the book in India.

‘I am glad to report that the mad souls (even the wicked ones) in THE MINISTRY OF UTMOST HAPPINESS have found a way into the world, and that I have found my publishers,’ Roy said in a statement released to the press by her publishers.

Roy, who won the Booker for her debut novel, The God of Small Things, in 1997 has not returned to a full-length work of fiction since then. Over the last two decades, she has written several volumes of non-fiction — essays, interviews, journalism — but not come up with another novel yet, frustrating her fans.
