Reviews

French combines his lifelong passion, India, with his scholarly interest ... a fascinating anaylsis, revealing a deeper truth. -- Salil Tripathi * The Independent *
It is a funny, witty book; also dense, gripping, thrilling. What blazes through from each page is French's absolute and uncondescending engagement with India -- Neel Mukherjee * The Times *
Wide-ranging, clear-sighted, warm-hearted and immensely readable -- Nirpal Dhaliwal * Evening Standard *
French is a fine reporter, with an appealing fascination for all things Indian ... an accomplished portrait of momentous times in a remarkable country * Economist *
Admirable ... There are many Indias, and Patrick French sets out, with enthusiasm and empathy, to encounter as many as he can find -- David Gilmour * Spectator *
Mr. French compresses 63 years of post-independence history into 450-odd pages fizzing with wit, insight and infectious curiosity ... a riveting read, and one suspects that Mr. French could not pen a boring passage if he tried. -- Sadanand Dhume * Wall Street Journal *
