Booker Prize-winning author Arundhati Roy is to publish her second novel - 20 years after her bestseller The God of Small Things came out.

The Ministry of Utmost Happiness will be published in June 2017.

"I am glad to report that the mad souls (even the wicked ones) in The Ministry of Utmost Happiness have found a way into the world," Roy said.

She has written a wide range of non-fiction but this will be her first work of long-form fiction since her debut.
