Arundhati Roy

India (b.1961)

As the world knows, Arundhati Roy's defence of her principles (and of the underprivileged, the forgotten and the threatened in her homeland) have taken her to court many times and, notoriously, to prison for one night in March 2002. The God of Small Things won the 1997 Booker Prize and was an international No 1 bestseller.
