I have been an Indiaphile ever since the late 1960s, following 3 1/2 months spent living and working in that country in charge of graphics for an Eames exhibition on Nehru and his time. This book is written about the lives of two British-born sisters in India the early 20th century. Less known than E. M. Forster’s books , it educates us about international human relationships and the ways in which macro-societies impact the micro, personal self.
