Indra Sinha’s portrait of a survivor is a stunningly humane work of storytelling that takes us right to the heart of contemporary India.

Ever since he can remember, Animal has gone on all fours - his broken body the result of That Night when, thanks to a US chemical company, the Apocalypse visited his slum. Years later, a young American doctor arrives to open a free clinic for the still suffering townsfolk, but struggles to convince them she isn't there to do the dirty work of the 'Kampani'. Animal, of course, immediately plunges into a web of intrigue, with the shameless aim of turning events to his advantage.
