A full-length novel written by a citizen of the Commonwealth, the Republic of Ireland or Zimbabwe is eligible for the Booker Prize. The reputation of the prize is sure to transform the fortunes of the author who receives it. This prestigious prize has been won by four Indians—Salman Rushdie (Midnight's Children, 1981), Arundhati Roy (The God of Small Things, 1997), Kiran Desai (The Inheritance of Loss, 2006) and Aravind Adiga (The White Tiger, 2008). With the award of this prize to Indians, Indian Writing in English (IWE) has become a force to be reckoned with. The present anthology of critical essays proposes to analyse  the above  Booker-winning novels and the general subject of the Booker and India.
