Book Description Paper Back. Book Condition: New. (Size: 21.5x14cm), The setting is Kerala, the time the early 1950s. Lily Macnitosh, wife of BBC correspondence John Macintosh, gives premature birth to their second on the night of Vishnu, during one of John's many absences. Lily cannot produce milk, so Cotton Mary, one of the Anglo-Indian nurses at teh hospital, hints at a solution. She starts taking the babdy to her sister Blossom, a wheelchair-bound wet nurse, for feeding. Seeing themselves as british, both sisters yearn for the colonial past and are thrilled to have a white child to look after. Mary enters the Macintosh household as an ayah and, with Lily depressed and withdrawn, works her way into a position of increasing power. She begins to harbour delusions of replacing Lily as teh lady of the house, unaware that her niece Rosie has become John's lover. Events take a strange turn and Mary eventually succumbs to her circumstances which she realizes are entirely beyond her. xiv+138 Verify ISBN for International Edition; year of publication 2000 0140295755.
