Come SeptemberCome September by Arundhati Roy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Arundhati Roy’s ‘Come September’ is a scathing treatise on globalisation, nationalism and US hypocrisy — carried off with warmth and humour.

View all my reviews

In this acclaimed Lannan foundation lecture from September 2002, Roy speaks poetically to power on the US’ War on Terror, globalization, the misuses of nationalism, and the growing chasm between the rich and poor. With lyricism and passion, Roy combines her literary talents and encyclopedic knowledge to expose injustice and provide hope for a future world.
