This collection of essays on anglo-Indian Fiction breaks fresh ground in two ways: First, in general essays like "The Ignorance of the Learned British' and 'The Eurasian in Anglo- Indian Fiction' it provides a startlingly new prespective on the colonial experience; secondly, the essays on individual novels like Ki[ling's Kim and Forster's A Passage to India ruthlessly expose the clay feet of revered idols; and the studies of long forgotten masterpieces like F. Anstey's The Chronicles of Budgepore are probably the first comprehensive evaluations of significant novels unjustifiably neglected for years. Written in dr Naik's usual lucid, witty and totally jargon-free style, the book should prove absorbing to the general reader, while the student of the subject should find it a mine of research opportunities. Printed Pages: 210.
