Bhopal's People

Voted by his peers as one of the top 10 British copywriters of all time, India-born Indra Sinha walked away from his advertising career in 1994 to write "about things that mattered". Two novels later, he may at last have found his subject with Animal's People, a novel inspired by his abiding interest in helping the victims of the Bhopal gas tragedy: "[The book] reveals that the very spirit of Bhopal has seeped into his unconscious, much as the gas from Union Carbide's factory has leaked into Bhopal's collective bloodstream."
