Staying On
By

Rating
Tusker and Lily Smalley stayed on in India. Given the chance to return 'home' when Tusker, once a Colonel in the British Army, retired, they chose instead to remain in the small hill town of Pangkot, with its eccentric inhabitants and archaic rituals left over from the days of the Empire. Only the tyranny of their landlady, the imposing Mrs Bhoolabhoy, threatens to upset the quiet rhythm of their days. Both funny and deeply moving, Staying On is a unique, engrossing portrait of the end of an empire and of a forty-year love affair.

Reviews

"Staying On covers only a few months but it carries the emotional impact of a lifetime, even a civilisation" * Philip Larkin * "Certainly his funniest and, I think, his best. it is a first-class book and deserves to be remembered for a long time" * Evening Standard * "One of the most cherished books of the last quarter-century. It is good to re-read it for its humour and pathos as well as its wonderful description of the legacy of the Raj" * Sunday Telegraph *
