Description

This wide-ranging study examines the emergence and the peaking of the twentieth century Indian English fiction, including its new bearings and fresh flowering in the last two decades of the century. It offers both a survey of he trends and tendencies of this genre during this period and a critique of some of its major voices.

At once incisive and comprehensive, and laced with telling perceptions, the volume epitomizes Professor M K Naik’s vintage writing on the Indian English fiction of this period
