Reviews

‘The characters in ‘Tully Country’ may date from another time, but there is a timelessness about their lives that serves to bestir the conscience of a country that believes, too early, that it has arrived.’ Book review of Upcountry Tales by Mark Tully.

‘Shanta Gokhale’s translation of the book by Lakshmibai Tilak is the gold standard of autobiographical writing in India’ Book review of Smritichitre by Lakshmibai Tilak.

‘The topics he writes on range from the human to the divine and back again, and in their combined scope he encompasses the past, present, and future of not just Egypt but all colonised cultures from the eyes of a committed citizen… Coming at this turbulent stage in our own nation’s evolving history, this book will act as an emblem of not just the dangers but also the legacies of a public life: A life free, bold, and tolerant.’ Book review of The Meaning of Civilisation by Naguib Mahfouz.
