"An absorbing story of a world in transition, brought to life through characters who love and suffer with equal intensity." --J. M. Coetzee "There is no denying Ghosh's command of culture and history....[He] proves a writer of supreme skill and intelligence." --The Atlantic Monthly "I will never forget the young and old Rajkumar, Dolly, the Princesses, the forests of teak, the wealth that made families and wars. A wonderful novel. An incredible story." --Grace Paley "A rich, layered epic that probes the meaning of identity and homeland-- a literary territory that is as resonant now, in our globalized culture, as it was when the sun never set on the British Empire." --Los Angeles Times Book Review "A novelist of dazzling ingenuity." --San Francisco Chronicle
