LOVESONG FOR INDIA: Tales from East and West

RUTH PRAWER JHABVALA    Book Number: 85625    Product format: Paperback

The Academy Award winner for her screenplays A Room With A View and Howards End and Booker Prize winner for Heat and Dust in 1975, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala died aged 85 in April 2013. Here is her masterclass in storytelling and writing beautiful, luminous prose in a hugely enjoyable collection written with sly humour. An Indian poetess exerts an artistic and sexual dominion over her English translator. A middle-aged man is found dead in mysterious circumstances in a shabby Indian guesthouse, leaving an assortment of women to reassemble the pieces of his secret life. A young English girl with a beautiful voice infiltrates Fifth Avenue theatrical royalty, and a beautiful Hollywood film star exacts a clever, protracted revenge on her nemesis. Speaking of mortality and family rivalry, power, love and the loss of innocence, this is a delicious assortment of fairy tales and parables. 276pp in paperback.
