Arundhati Roy was trained as an architect and worked in cinema for several years as a screenwriter and production designer. Her first novel, The God of Small Things , won the Booker Prize in 1997. Her non-fiction books include two collections of political writing, The Algebra of Infinite Justice (2002) and An Ordinary Person’s Guide to Empire (2004) where she writes about nuclear weapons, the ecology of large dams, the impact of corporate globalization, the war on terror and the rise of Hindu nationalism in India. Much of her work examines the dark side of what is passed off as democracy and she studies the nature of the relationship between those who have power and those who resist it. In 2005 she was the spokesperson of the jury at the World Tribunal on Iraq held in Istanbul. For Scenarios Arundhati Roy’s fictional text meditates on the real and metaphorical meaning in today’s world, of a fortress that has never been subject to attack.
