Le Tigre blanc by Aravind Adiga Summary

Le tigre blanc, c’est Balram Halwai, ainsi remarqué par l’un de ses professeurs impressionné par son intelligence aussi rare que ce félin exceptionnel. Dans son Bihar natal miséreux, corrompu et violent, Balram est pourtant obligé d’interrompre ses études afin de travailler, comme son frère, dans le tea-shop du village. Mais il rêve surtout de quitter à jamais les rives noirâtres d’un Gange qui charrie les désespoirs de centaines de générations. La chance lui sourit enfin à Delhi où il est embauché comme chauffeur. Et tout en conduisant, en driver zélé, M. Ashok et Pinky Madam de centres commerciaux rutilants en banques avenantes, d’hôtels de luxe en restaurants à la mode, Balram Halwai est ébloui par les feux brillants de la Shining India du XXIe siècle, qui finit par avoir raison de son honnêteté. Car, de serviteur fidèle, Balram bascule dans le vol, le meurtre et pour finir... dans l’Entreprise... Roman obsédant écrit au scalpel et à même la chair du sous-continent, Le Tigre blanc, conte moderne, irrévérencieux, amoral mais profondément attachant de deux Indes, est l’œuvre du plus doué des jeunes auteurs indiens. Booker Prize 2008

Les Ombres de Kittur by Aravind Adiga Summary

Kittur, une petite ville imaginaire de l’Inde du Sud située sur la côte du Karnataka – entre Goa et Calicut – est le théâtre des dernières histoires de l’auteur du Tigre blanc. Avec ses hautes et basses castes, ses multiples religions, ses immigrés tamouls, ses rikshawallahs, ses fonctionnaires corrompus et ses enfants des rues, Kittur incarne l’Inde tout entière. On y croise Ziauddin, garçon famélique qui hante comme tant d’autres les gares du pays ; « Xerox » Ramakrishna, arrêté pour vente illégale de photocopies des Versets sataniques ; Shankara, poseur de bombe dans son école jésuite ; Abbasi, propriétaire musulman d’un atelier de confection qui résiste aux pressions des fonctionnaires véreux ; Soumya, douce petite fille d’ouvrier qui, par amour pour son père, court lui chercher sa dose d’héroïne à l’autre bout de la ville ; George D’Souza, le jardinier catholique de Mrs Gomes, qui peine à établir la juste distance entre maîtresse et serviteur ; Murali, le brahmane devenu communiste, qui a laissé la vie passer... Ces quatorze destinées attachantes et envoûtantes d’hommes, de femmes et d’enfants illustrent les terribles et injustes enjeux de castes, de classes et de pouvoir dont l’Inde a été la scène lors d’années cruciales : entre l’assassinat d’Indira Gandhi et celui de son fils Rajiv.

Catch the White Tiger by Michael Ashley,Tony Assali Summary

In 1971, civil war raged in Tony Assali's home country of Lebanon. The oldest of five children, Tony had no choice but to come to America alone, establishing a foothold so that one day the rest of his family could join him. Thrilled, yet frightened at the same time, Tony knew it was up to him to make it with so many people depending on him.Luckily for Tony, all his life he possessed a special skill: the ability to perceive "White Tigers," rare and valuable opportunities other people either do not see or are too afraid to pursue. Using his powers of persuasion and relentless work ethic, Tony landed job after job, always with an eye on earning more money, to obtain the American dream.From humble beginnings working in a doughnut factory, Tony became the most sought-after waiter at a high-end restaurant; from there, he parlayed his charm into a position selling men's suits by the thousands. At the same time, he fulfilled his promise to his family, bringing all of his loved ones over, getting them jobs, and helping to establish lives for them in America.Never content to rest on past wins, Tony dared to dream bigger, originating the idea to sell hummus, a Mediterranean staple from his homeland, in American grocery stores across the US. This White Tiger caught on in a big way, making Tony a millionaire by the time he sold his food company in 1980s. Yet, still Tony hungered for more. He came out of semi-retirement to challenge himself once again selling meat door-to-door, just because he liked the thrill of closing. He sold so many items, shattering all of the company records, that the computer couldn't keep up with him. Yet, in spite of so many triumphs, Tony still hadn't found the White Tiger he was really looking for -- the right woman to make his life complete. After four marriages, Tony at last caught his White Tiger, the love of his life. The problem was, she was already married. Never the type of person to let an objection stop him, Tony found a way to land his ultimate White Tiger while creating his final economic empire, a lucrative real estate business in Sunny Orange County.
