Description

A fascinating collection, composed over nearly half a century in locations as diverse as plush European hotels and remote north Indian prison cells.

These letters give an important insight into Nehru and his family, ranging over politics, literature, fashion, health, sport and personal relationships. Always well written, they demonstrate the erudition, perception and generosity of the young Nehru, and evoke a tenderness that today seems almost inconceivable in a politician, as well as offering an eloquent memorial to the enduring friendship between a brother and sister.

The letters included in this book have been divided into seven sections - each with its own characteristic flavor of life in and out of prison.
