Condition: Fine


This copy has been neatly SIGNED by Anita Desai on the title page. With the same power to immerse us in the reality she creates, Anita Desai draws upon her double heritage as child of a German mother and Indian father to tell the story of a German Jew who has fled the Holocaust to remake his life in India. With its unusual intensity of vision—a story told, a world perceived, from both the inside and the outside—"Baumgartner's Bombay" provides a brilliantly three-dimensional portrait not only of India but of our century's nationless wanderers.
