Reading List


Hall, Tarquin. The Case of the Man Who Died Laughing. Toronto: McClelland and Stewart, 2010.

This who-dunnit provides an entertaining glimpse of life in contemporary Delhi.

Kipling, Rudyard. Kim.

Although it reflects many of the racist stereotypes and imperialistic ideas of its time, Kipling's adventure novel often provides an affectionate depiction of India's multicultural mosaic and traditional wisdom.

Mukherjee, Bharati. Miss New India. New York: Mariner Books, 2012.

This story of a charming, beautiful and naive young woman who flees her tradition bound hometown in the backwaters of Bihar to find a new life in the bustling high tech world of Bangalore. In the process she discovers the gloom behind the glitter and an appreciation for the virtues of the world that is being left behind. Most importantly, she is reinforced in her determination to define her place in the new India on her own terms.

D'Oyly, Sir Charles. Tom Raw, the Griffin

This burlesque poem in twelve cantos is illustrated with twenty-five engravings portraying the adventures of a cadet in the East India company's service, from his departure from England until he obtains a staff position in India.

Parks, Francis. Wanderings of a Pilgrim in Search of the Picturesque.

In her twenty-four years in India, as the wife of a British official, Fanny Parks travelled far and wide and befriended many important people including the Queen of Gwalior, Baiza Bai.

Sherwood, Mary Martha. The History of Little Henry and His Bearer

This is a relic of the missionary influence which became increasingly evident in India in the nineteenth century.
