What happens when we attempt to exchange the life we are given for something better? Can we transform the possibilities we are born into?
A State of Freedom prises open the central, defining events of our century - displacement and migration - but not as you imagine them. Five characters in very different circumstances, from a domestic cook in Mumbai to a vagrant and his dancing bear, and a girl who escapes terror in her home village for a new life in the city, find out the meanings of dislocation and the desire for more.
Set in contemporary India and moving between the reality of this world and the shadow of another, this novel of multiple narratives - formally daring, fierce but full of pity - delivers a devastating and haunting exploration of the unquenchable human urge to strive for a different life.

Dreadful - don't waste your money
Absolutely awful - confusing characters, a story that jumps around with no logic, gratuitous violence... a most unpleasant experience. I gave up after about two hours listening - this is one I'm definitely returning - I have better things to do with my time and my money.
