Sisukirjeldus

A Guardian, Financial Times, The Millions, Vulture and Buzzfeeds Most Anticipated of 2020

'An immigrants view conveyed with authority and wit... Adiga is a startlingly fine observer, and a complicator, in the manner of V.S. Naipaul.' New York Times

From the bestselling, Man Booker Prize-winning author of The White Tiger and Selection Day, Aravind Adiga, comes the story of an undocumented immigrant who becomes the only witness to a crime and must face an impossible moral dilemma.

Danny Dhananjaya Rajaratnam is an undocumented immigrant in Sydney, denied refugee status after he has fled from his native Sri Lanka.

Working as a cleaner, living out of a grocery storeroom, for three years hes been trying to create a new identity for himself. And now, with his beloved vegan girlfriend, Sonja, with his hidden accent and highlights in his hair, he is as close as he has ever come to living a normal Australian life. But then one morning, Danny learns a female client of his has been murdered. When Danny recognizes a jacket left at the murder scene, he believes it belongs to another of his clients a doctor with whom he knows the woman was having an affair.

Suddenly Danny is confronted with a choice: come forward with his knowledge about the crime and risk being deported, or say nothing, and let justice go undone? Over the course of a single day, evaluating the weight of his past, his dreams for the future, and the unpredictable, often absurd reality of living invisibly and undocumented, he must wrestle with his conscience and decide if a person without rights still has responsibilities.

Suspenseful, propulsive, and full of Aravind Adigas signature wit and magic, Amnesty is both a timeless moral struggle and a universal story with particular urgency today.
