characters õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Aravind Adiga Aravind Adiga ✓ 4 Summary Amnesty AUTHOR Aravind Adiga Summary í 104 A riveting suspenseful and exuberant novel from the bestselling Man Booker Prize–winning author of The White Tiger and Selection Day about a young illegal immigrant who must decide whether to report crucial information about a murder and thereby risk deportationDanny formerly Dhananjaya Rajaratnam is an illegal immigrant in Sydney Australia denied refugee status after he fled from Sri Lanka Working as a cleaner living out of a grocery storeroom for three years he’s been trying to create a new identity for himself A. Danny a young adult in his twenties from Sri Lanka has been living in Australia illegally for four years as a cleaner Soon into the novel one of the residents that he cleaned for is killed Danny might have an idea of what could have happened but he internally struggles with the responsibility of this knowledge since the decision to help with the murder case could get him deported The novel takes place throughout this one day in Danny s life But whoever did it and for whatever reason one thing was almost certain The killer was a citizen The story pays homage to the thoughts and difficult decisions that immigrants specifically illegals make throughout the day It highlights uestions of accountability and examines the echelons of humanity Danny s flashbacks and encounters throughout the day also illuminate his own prejudice towards legal immigrants and citizens Rich Asians and poor Asians don t seem to talk to each other and that s how Australians make most of their money The writing was disjointed and made it hard for me to read I found myself rereading sentences often to make sure I read them correctly Sometimes that made it hard to process different things that were occurring which took away from the enjoyment It is written in an unusual way and Danny was a peculiar character who had eccentric ualities Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an advance copy Opinions are my own

Aravind Adiga s White Tiger was I think the weakest Booker winning book I have ever read not my least favourite there are other books which did not work for me at all Disgrace Brief History of Seven Killings The Finkler uestion but where I would not uestion their literary merit but in my view the least meritorious The book of course many years pre American Dirt received criticisms of appropriationinauthenticity in this case less in ethnic terms than wealth ones and was also I felt too simplistic with a framing device letters to the Chinese Premier which made no sense and did not work His second novel Selection Day was enjoyable for me particularly given its cricket foundations but lacked depth and direction I feltThis is his third novel and coincidentally the third I have read in 2020 which deals with Tamil immigration after Nikita Lalwani s You People and Minoli Salgado s Republic of Consciousness Prize shortlisted short story collection Broken Jaw Overall I would say it is the strongest of the author s three novels but the weakest of the three Tamil diaspora novels I read The story is set over 11 hours in modern day Sydney but during that time ranges back over the life of the first party narrator Dhananjaya RajaratnamDanny as he is popularly known grew up in Sri Lanka returning there after a year working and being ripped off by his employer in a Dubai hotel only to be interrogated and tortured on his return as a suspected LTTETamil Tiger terrorist due to a case of mistaken identity When his family and neighbours seem to doubt his story he decided to leave the country but unlike his cousin who flees via people smugglers to Canada and then claims asylum he decides to get a student visa to Australia When his college seems of a front for low grade work and reminds him of his Dubai experience he uits lets his student visa deliberately expire and realising that he has no hope of asylum I the circumstances drops underground setting up his own word of mouth one man cleaning business As an aside the college experience was initially reminiscent of Orchestra of Minorities but unlike that book this is not a pure scam attempt to exploit the needy As a further aside Danny s deviated septum his refractory sinuses reminded me of Midnight s Children Both of those are much better readsBuy Danny s decision leaves him in a middle ground between two types of immigrants asylum seekers and legal immigrants He had not played the game right people were running from countries that were burning to not yet burning ones catching boats cutting barbed wire smuggling into containers at the bottom of ships while another set of people were trying to stop stall catch or turn them back There were definite rules in this game either you braved it got on the boat got caught by the Coast Guard went to special jail in which case there were lawyers social workers left wing campaigners who would help you rush to help you then to post pictures of their generosity on Facebook or you arrived by plane legally with a visa printed on your passport went to their dodgy colleges said Sorry Sorry Sorry when they yelled and cleaned their toilet bowls for five or six years before becoming a citizen in the seventh What you did not do was to fall in between these two by coming to Australia legally and then sliding under appearing to be one thing and then another because that made you an illegal s illegal with no one to scream for you and no one to represent you in court And this custom made cell within the global prison was Danny s own a personal hot coal he had forged for himself to stand on One of Danny s clients is Radha married to Mark a prosperous real estate seller she is sacked from her government job when it turns out she has been borrowing funds during the week to fuel a gambling addiction the rehab for which allows her to meet another gambler the unpredictable Prakash with who she starts an affair putting up Prakash in a spare flat her husband owns employing Danny to clean it albeit often interrupted by their lovemaking the two of them adopting Danny as a kind of non participating companion on their Pokie playing trips On the day of the book Danny has broken his contract with them due to their concerns when they find he is illegal He has also adopted a bleached blond uiff as part of an image makeover and finds a Vietnamese Vegan girlfriend SonjaThe book s plot is simple coincidence heavy and than a little silly Danny is cleaning one flat when he is told by police there has been a murder connected to the flats opposite where Radha and Mark live He uickly realises that Radha is the victim and crucially via the location and a jacket used to warp the body that Prakash is the murderer something confirmed by Prakash s mix of eccentricity and threats when he contacts them something which leads him in the dilemma that frames the book But even if the police believed you and phoned Prakash he would guess at once you were the one who dobbed him in and in return he would dob you in as an illegal He would call the immigration dob in number bout the Legendary Cleaner who was illegal give his name and what he looked like and where he lived because the dead woman had told him everything Incidentally for an Australian penal system based treatment of dobbing I can instead recommend Prisoner Cell Block H There is a late twist of sorts in the book which seems even pointless to me and also to reply on a coincidence Although the plot is weak the strength of the book is in its examination of the murky worlds of legal and illegal immigration the tensions between the different groups of immigrants particularly across the legalillegal divide the way in which Australian society is at the same time founded on racial prejudice both against the indigenous population and incomers as an aside the author slightly oddly has Danny drawing a largely discredited theory around TamilAboriginal links proud of its melting pot culture and both completely reliant and unrelentingly hostile to immigrants the difference between a society run on the absence of non arbitrary law and absolute justice Sri Lanka and one run on law and justice which even if it can be hard to come by for outsiders still gives them hope of an eventual fair hearing Australia Easiest thing in the world becoming invisible to white people who don t see you anyway but the hardest thing is becoming invisible to brown people who will see you no matter whatIt is an Indonesia inside Australia an archipelago of illegals each isolated from each other and kept weak and fearful by this isolationA city and a civilization built on the principle of the exclusion of men and women who were not white and which fully outgrew that principle only a generation agoRich Asians and poor Asians don t seem to talk to each other and that s how Australians make most of their money Many of us flee chaos to come here Aussies are an optimistic and methodical peopleUnderstanding the concept of the rule that cannot be broken is vital to adjusting here Overall an interesting read but I would recommend instead the other novels short story collection and TV series I have highlighted
