Riot: A Love Story Book Summary and Study Guide. Shashi Tharoor Booklist Shashi Tharoor Message Board. Priscilla Hart, a young idealistic American student, travels to India to volunteer with a female population-control awareness program. In the course of her work in the small town of Zalilgarh, Priscilla meets an attractive, but very married, government official. An instant affinity is felt by both of them and a torrid, clandestine love affair ensures.
Shashi Tharoor's RIOT: A LOVE STORY focuses on the mysterious killing of a young American woman during violent Hindu-Muslim riots in the village of Zalilgrah, India. As a result the reader is granted multiple viewpoints of not only the riot itself but also broader religious tensions and history of India. Slowly Priscilla's experiences in India are revealed up to the moment of her death. I've read a fair amount of Indian Literature and this book impressed me by placing the Hindu-Muslim riots in the proper historical and religious contexts. Most books in this genre might simply refer to religious tensions and violence but they rarely progress further.
