Description

A magnificent novel of Empire and its aftermath. The tensions and conflicts that accompanied the birth of modern India are grippingly evoked in John Masters’ classic Bhowani Junction. Set in the late 1940s and first published in 1954 in the wake of Partition, the novel has increased in stature over the years.

Bhowani Junction, along with Masters’ other Indian novels, now takes its place alongside E.M. Forster’s A Passage to India and the acclaimed works of such later writers as Paul Scott and Salman Rushdie.

REVIEWS & COMMENTS:

“As vivid as certain passages of E.M. Forster’s famous A Passage to India …we feel the true tragedy of these disturbed and distracted lives.”
- Daily Mail

-The Observer
