Shelves: indian-novels 3. Ruth Prawer Jhabvala is an interesting character; her parents fled the Nazis in the late s and she lost many family members in the Holocaust. She lived initially in Britain and then married an Indian architect and moved to India in She remained there until the s when she moved to the US where she continued her already creative relationship with the Merchant Ivory team and had a hand in a great many of their 3. She remained there until the s when she moved to the US where she continued her already creative relationship with the Merchant Ivory team and had a hand in a great many of their films.

She is a perceptive writer, but is something of an outsider. Keen observation, but the sense of distance. This novel jumps between India in the s and India in the s. It revolves around Olivia in the s, a new bride in India; married to a middle ranking and starchy civil servant and her step granddaughter who is unnamed in the s who is trying to find out about Olivia.

There are lots of parallels between the two stories. The colonial servants are caricatures in many ways; and yet They would have slotted into the s section of this book quite nicely. There was no remorse regret that we had let India go and no understanding of what Imperialism and Empire was about. It was like stepping back in time. The Nawab in the book is certainly a caricature and has a lack of subtlety; he seems to be a composite of everything that might possibly be wrong with the Indian upper class.

However the portrayals of the two women, I found interesting and the character of Olivia was very good and she deserved a better backdrop. Her reactions to the stifling colonial community and her gradual rebellion were well written. It is difficult to understand why Olivia falls for either of the men she falls for; but apparently power is a great aphrodisiac. Both of the British men fail to cope with India in entirely different ways and both women stay.

As you may sense I am a little conflicted in what I think about it and am sitting firmly on the fence!
