9780099731016: Vintage Book Of Indian Writing 1947 - 1997: 1947-97

The Indian subcontinent has produced some of the world's greatest writers, and a body of literature unsurpassed in its sustained imagination, impassioned lyricism and sparkling tragi-comedy. Now Salman Rushdie and Elizabeth West have collected together the finest Indian writing of the last fifty years.

Review:

"Rushdie offers us a sweeping, birds' eye view of 50 years of good writing. He proves that there is an Indo-Anglian canon, and as he reaches our own time, he elects new contenders for future glory" (Aamer Hussein Independent)

"For matters both literary and (in the broad sense) political, one of the most informative, as well as enjoyable, [books about India] is The Vintage Book of Indian Writing 1947-97... Rushdie's fine introduction to this compendium of contemporary Indian prose...digresses fascinatingly on polylingualism, identity and dislocation" ( Independent on Sunday)

"This is the most impressive regional anthology I've seen for years. But then India is an awfully big region. With a population of nearly a billion, you would expect some crackerjack writers in their midst. And here they are." (Iain Sharp The Sunday Star-Times (Auckland))

Book Description:

The perfect introduction to one of the world's richest literary traditions, Rushdie's anthology boasts the best in Indian writing accross 50 years of independence.
