520    Kiran Desai's first novel, Hullabaloo in the Guava Orchard,
       was published to unanimous acclaim in over twenty-two 
       countries. Now Desai takes us to the northeastern 
       Himalayas where a rising insurgency challenges the old way
       of life. In a crumbling, isolated house at the foot of 
       Mount Kanchenjunga lives an embittered old judge who wants
       to retire in peace when his orphaned granddaughter Sai 
       arrives on his doorstep. The judge's chatty cook watches 
       over her, but his thoughts are mostly with his son, Biju, 
       hopscotching from one New York restaurant job to another, 
       trying to stay a step ahead of the INS, forced to consider
       his country's place in the world. When a Nepalese 
       insurgency in the mountains threatens Sai's new-sprung 
       romance with her handsome Nepali tutor and causes their 
       lives to descend into chaos, they, too, are forced to 
       confront their colliding interests. The nation fights 
       itself. The cook witnesses the hierarchy being overturned 
       and discarded
