Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Set in Burma during the British invasion of 1885, this masterly novel by Amitav Ghosh tells the story of Rajkumar, a poor boy lifted on the tides of political and social chaos, who goes on to create an empire in the Burmese teak forest. When soldiers force the royal family out of the Glass Palace and into exile, Rajkumar befriends Dolly, a young woman in the court of the Burmese Queen, whose love will shape his life. He cannot forget her, and years later, as a rich man, he goes in search of her. The struggles that have made Burma, India, and Malaya the places they are today are illuminated in this wonderful novel by the writer Chitra Divakaruni calls a master storyteller.

Synopsis:

Rajkumar, in truly Dickensian style, succeeds at making a fortune from his logging business, but never forgets Dolly, the girl he saw accompanying the exiled Burmese royal family.

Synopsis:

The acclaimed author of "The Calcutta Chromosone" and "The Shadow Lines" has garnered comparisons with a "Suitable Boy" for this exotic, epic saga, centred around the British occupation of Burma. "A distinctive voice, polished and profound" "Times Literary Supplement".
