    Story
    (5)

    In the India of 1942, two rapes take place simultaneously - that of an English girl in Mayapore, and that of India by the British. In each, physical violence, racial animosity, the coercion of the weak by the strong all play their part, but playing a part too are love, affection, loyalty, and recognition that the last division of all to be overcome is the colour of the skin.

    A fine work, beautifully read

    This is no nostalgia-filled love look back to the Raj. It is a psychologically acute, and deeply thoughtful work about racism, colonialism and humans ..Show More »
