Set and published during the time the British Raj, a time of subalterns and tea planters, tiffin and bands playing The Roast Beef of England, the forty stories in 'Plain Tales From The Hills' are played out under an unforgiving sun, revealing the deceit, faithlessness, shallowness, despair, mistrust, hate and petty jealousies rife amongst the British inhabitants of India. Fascinating, funny, tragic, immensely readable and witty, these stories provide an invaluable insight into life in India during the British Raj, introducing us to the work of one of the most beloved writers of the twentieth century.
