Product Details


“[A] vast and impressive novel about the last days of the British raj in India.” –Time

“Remarkable . . . Never has the theme–relations between Europeans and non-Europeans–been treated as brilliantly.” –The New Yorker

“Through the Layton family the changing spirit of the raj may be judged . . . From a work like this . . . all who care about fiction can take heart.” –London Times

“Magnificent. . . . Scott throws us into India, wretched and beautiful. He makes us become his people, sometimes by grinding us down under their anguish. I cannot think of anything worth knowing about the raj that Scott hasn’t told me. . . . His contribution to literature is permanent.” –The New York Times Book Review

“[A Division of the Spoils’] two great and time-resisting virtues are, first, the extraordinary range of characters it so skillfully portrays and, secondly, its powerful evocation of the last days of British India.” –Times Literary Supplement
