One of the most important landmarks of post-war fiction.. a mighty literary experience. India 1942 and everything is in flux. World War II has shown that the British are not invincible and the self-rule lobby is gaining many supporters. Against this background, Daphne Manners, a young English girl is brutally raped in the Bibighat Gardens. The Racism, brutality and hatred launched upon the head of her young Indian lover echo the dreadful violence perpetrated on Daphne and reveal the desperate state of Anglo-Indian relations. the rift that will eventually prise India the jewel in the Imperial crown from colonial rule is beginning to gape side. A major work, a glittering combination of brilliant craftsmanship, psychological perception and objective reporting Rarely have the sounds and smells and total atmosphere been so evocatively suggested.
