Praise

Praise for Heat and Dust:

“A superb book. A complex story line, handled with dazzling assurance… moving and profound. Ruth Prawer Jhabvala has not only written a love story, she has also exposed the soul and nerve ends of a fascinating and compelling country. This is a book of cool, controlled brilliance. It is a jewel to be treasured.” —The Times

“Her tussle with India is one of the richest treats of contemporary literature.” —The Guardian

“A writer of genius … a writer of world class — a master storyteller.” —Sunday Times

“Heat and Dust is an obscure and somber novel, tense with undisclosed judgments and meanings that crouch and whisper just beyond one’s reach.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Crafted with technical skill as assured as it is unobtrusive, this delicately written novel is, because of its setting and its theme of Anglo–Indian relationships, reminiscent of E.M. Forster’s great novel, A Passage to India. It does not suffer by comparison.” —The Washington Post

“A penetrating and compassionate love story, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala has exposed the soul and nerve ends of a fascinating and compelling country … This is a book of cool, controlled brilliance. It is a jewel to be treasured.” —The London Times
