Author Aravind Adiga highlights Australian 'hypocrisy'

Indian novelist's new work humanizes 'inhumane' fate of Asian illegal migrants

SYDNEY -- It is fitting that Aravind Adiga, one of India's most acute modern chroniclers, should find himself locked down in Sydney, the setting of "Amnesty," his most recently published novel, and the first that takes place outside his native land.

Along with stints in the U.S. and returns to south India, Australia has been a pillar of what Adiga calls his "triangulated life," since he spent his last two years of high school there after the death of his mother.
