Marable, Manning, 1950-2011 — Though Arundhati Roy has written an absorbing novel about India, most of her work consists of impassioned essays about social issues. Readers who appreciate reading such vigorous, thought-provoking commentary may want to try Manning Marable's works focused on questions of race and society in the United States. -- Katherine Johnson

Smith, Zadie — Arundhati Roy writes more nonfiction than fiction, and Zadie Smith writes more fiction. Both their novels and their essays appeal to readers who appreciate vigorous, incisive explorations of social and political concerns; their fiction is also entertaining and filled with memorable characters. -- Katherine Johnson
