♥ Book Title : Heat and Dust
☯ Full Synopsis : "Winner of the Book Prize, this profound and powerful novel intertwines two stories of two Indias over half a century. Set in colonial India during the 1920s, Heat and Dust tells the story of Olivia, a beautiful woman suffocated by the propriety and social constraints of her position as the wife of an important English civil servant. Longing for passion and independence, Olivia is drawn into the spell of the Nawab, a minor Indian prince deeply involved in gang raids and criminal plots. She is intrigued by the Nawab’s charm and aggressive courtship, and soon begins to spend most of her days in his company. But then she becomes pregnant, and unsure of the child’s paternity, she is faced with a wrenching dilemma. Her reaction to the crisis humiliates her husband and outrages the British community, breeding a scandal that lives in collective memory long after her death. The Times praised Jhabvala’s eighth novel as “a book of cool, controlled brilliance . . . a jewel to be treasured,” while the Guardian called “her tussle with India . . . one of the richest treats of contemporary literature.” “An obscure and somber novel, tense with undisclosed judgments and meanings that crouch and whisper just beyond one’s reach.” —New York Times"Article| Ruth Prawer Jhabvala| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Out of India
☯ Full Synopsis : "Chosen by The New York Times Book Review as one of the best books of 1986, this volume of stories, selected by the author from her own early work, represents the essence of her Indian experience. Bearing Jhabvala’s hallmark of balance, subtlety, wry humor, and beauty, these stories present characters that prove to be as vulnerable to the contradictions and oppressions of the human heart as to those of India itself."Article| Ruth Prawer Jhabvala| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : At the End of the Century: The Stories of Ruth Prawer Jhabvala
☯ Full Synopsis : ""To read Ruth Prawer Jhabvala is to regard the human heart through a magnifying glass." --Claire Luchette, O, The Oprah Magazine Multilayered, subtle, insightful short stories from the inimitable Booker Prize-winning author, with an introduction by Anita Desai Nobody has written so powerfully of the relationship between and within India and the Western middle classes than Ruth Prawer Jhabvala. In this selection of stories, chosen by her surviving family, her ability to tenderly and humorously view the situations faced by three (sometimes interacting) cultures--European, post-Independence Indian, and American--is never more acute. In "A Course of English Studies," a young woman arrives at Oxford from India and struggles to adapt, not only to the sad, stoic object of her infatuation, but also to a country that seems so resistant to passion and color. In the wrenching "Expiation," the blind, unconditional love of a cloth shop owner for his wastrel younger brother exposes the tragic beauty and foolishness of human compassion and faith. The wry and triumphant "Pagans" brings us middle-aged sisters Brigitte and Frankie in Los Angeles, who discover a youthful sexuality in the company of the languid and handsome young Indian, Shoki. This collection also includes Jhabvala's last story, "The Judge's Will," which appeared in The New Yorker just before her death in 2013. The profound inner experience of both men and women is at the center of Jhabvala's writing: she rivals Jane Austen with her impeccable powers of observation. With an introduction by her friend, the writer Anita Desai, At the End of the Century celebrates a writer's astonishing lifetime gift for language, and leaves us with no doubt of Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's unique place in modern literature."Article| Ruth Prawer Jhabvala| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : My Nine Lives
☯ Full Synopsis : "For her first novel in more than nine years, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala has written a most unusual book in a career of distinctive and unique accomplishments. My Nine Lives is Chapters of a Possible Past, as the subtitle declares. It is, as the author has commented, a book filled with invented memories. Nine vignettes are linked to portray a rich life filled with searching, from London to Delhi, from Hollywood to New York. Each chapter gathers a different cast of characters, some new and some vaguely familiar, and the linked assembly is as exciting and illuminating as an artists first show at a Soho gallery or a new play at the Studio Theater. After seventeen books, now in her 77th year, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala takes herself on as a subject, and the life she may have or may have wished to live. My Nine Lives is a moving and intriguing book of invention and memory."Article| Ruth Prawer Jhabvala| Statement ..."
