Mulberry Empireby Philip Hensher
Synopses & Reviews
HarperCollins are hoping that this will be the breakthrough novel for Philip Hensher, who is one of the most widely acclaimed critics on the current literary scene. A literary historical epic, which has received widespread acclaim and was longlisted for the 2002 Man Booker Prize.
This historical novel recounts an episode in the Great Game in central Asia - the courtship, betrayal and invasion of Afghanistan in the 1830s by the emissaries of Her Majesty's Empire, which is followed by a bloody and summary expulsion of the Brits from Kabul following an Afghani insurrection.
