Last Man in Tower by Aravind AdigaA tale of one man refusing to leave his home in the face of property development. Tower A is a relic from a co-operative housing society established in the 1950s. When a property developer offers to buy out the residents for eye-watering sums, the principled yet arrogant teacher is the only one to refuse the offer, determined not to surrender his sentimental attachment to his home and his right to live in it, in the name of greed. His neighbours gradually relinquish any similar qualms they might have and, in a typically blunt satirical premise take matters into their own hands, determined to seize their slice of the new Mumbai as it transforms from stinky slum to silvery skyscrapers at dizzying, almost gravity-defying speed.

The setting is important and the use of Bombay city is what sets the tone of the novel. This is one of the books that cannot be moved to any other city or if the city was changed from Bombay to any other metropolitan the bite would be missing from the novel for you see Bombay is not just the setting but almost a living character. Bombay has been explored in other books like Maximum City and Sacred Games but in those novels the treatment is completely different. I went to the building and spoke to some of the residents — so it evolved out of real life. He describes the place and its people so well, you really feel like you are there.
