Amnesty: A Novel Background

Amnesty: A Novel Background

Written by Aravind Adiga Amnesty: A Novel (published in 2020) tells a story of an illegal immigrant named Danny who is in Sydney, Australia. He has been working as a cleaner and living out of a grocery storeroom for three years and has been trying to create a new identity for himself. After he gets a girlfriend named Sonja, he tries the strive to a more normal life. However, his life doesn't become totally normal for a while. One morning he finds out that one of his clients was brutally murdered. Danny suspects that the person that murdered him is a doctor whom he knows. He faces a conundrum, though: should he turn the doctor in, or should he withhold the critical information from the police.

Danny soon realizes that he is in a tough place. While he wants to do the right thing, he is afraid of the repercussions of turning the doctor in. He knows turning him in could put his own safety in jeopardy, as well as the safety of the people he cares about. He also knows that if he doesn't turn the doctor in, he could be seen as an accessory to the crime, and he could be deported. Overwhelmed by these fears, Danny decides to take a risk and seek help from an organization called Amnesty.

Amnesty is an organization dedicated to helping immigrants and refugees find safety and security. They provide legal assistance, social services, and psychological support to those in need. Danny is hesitant to seek help from them, but soon he realizes that Amnesty is his only hope. With their help, Danny is able to sort out his legal issues and make sure that justice is served. He is also able to find a sense of security and belonging in a new country.

Danny's story is an inspiring one. It serves as a reminder of the power of kindness and compassion in the face of great adversity. He also serves as a reminder of the importance of seeking help when you are in a difficult situation. Danny's story shows that it is possible to overcome any obstacle if you are willing to ask for help and put in the effort. It is also a reminder to always follow your conscience, no matter what the cost.

When it released, Amnesty: A Novel was met with warm critical reception. Kirkus Reviews loved the book, calling it "A well-crafted tale of entrapment, alert to the risk of exploitation that follows immigrants in a new country." Dwight Garner of The New York Times wrote a rave review of the book, calling it "bracing" and saying that the novel has a "simmering plot" that moves along rapidly.
