Set ? of course in India, these stories are concerned not so much with Europeans in India as with Indians themselves. They are about universal human passions ? yet interwoven with India itself. The heat, the vastness, the loneliness of India are all reflected in the lives of the people living in a country that is not so much an additional character as, often, the most central one.
