Acerca de


Chosen by The New York Times Book Review as one of the best books of 1986, this volume of stories, selected by the author from her own early work, represents the essence of her Indian experience. Bearing Jhabvala’s hallmark of balance, subtlety, wry humor, and beauty, these stories present characters that prove to be as vulnerable to the contradictions and oppressions of the human heart as to those of India itself.

About the Author:

Ruth Prawer Jhabvala was born of Polish parents in Cologne, Germany. She started school when Hitler came to power, and moved to England with her family in 1939. In 1951 she married Indian architect C.S.H. Jhabvala and moved with him to India. Jhabvala is the author of twelve novels, including Heat and Dust, which was awarded Britain's prestigious Booker Prize. She is a MacArthur Fellow, and has received a Guggenheim Fellowship and an award in Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. A talented screenwriter, Jhabvala has earned two Academy Awards (A Room with a View and Howards End) with her work for Merchant-Ivory Productions. She is currently preparing a screen adaptation of The Golden Bowl. She and her husband divide their time between Delhi and New York.
