Return to India is a brilliant and powerful memoir about what it means to be an immigrant in a foreign country and what propels immigrants to return to their homeland. In this intimate and remarkably candid memoir, Shoba Narayan, the author of Monsoon Diary, records her dilemma-ridden life as an immigrant straddling two cultures. What follows is a poignant story about love, family, identity and her search for a place to call home. From the thrill of being a naive newcomer in America, to becoming a proud US citizen, to grappling with immigrant parenting challenges, she offers an intense yet humorous insight into the shared dream of the Indian diaspora to return to their homeland. And as the countdown begins to her familys relocation to India, she shows how the journey back can be more complicated than anyone imagines. Vivid and eloquent, Return to India is a powerful reflection on a country lost, and then found, by a writer of exceptional talent. Printed Pages: 380. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 97245
Inhaltsangabe: Other Men s Flowers is the famous anthology of Lord Wavell s favourite poems. The anthology features some of the most memorable poems by the greatest poets of the English canon including Shakespeare, Milton, Kipling, Browning, Coleridge and Yeats among others.
To this memorial edition of a famous anthology, Lord Wavell's son has written a preface explaining how the book came into being and what pleasure its reception gave to the compiler: 'He never tried to conceal his evident surprise and delight at the success of the book. It brought him into association with writers whose work he had long enjoyed but whom he had never expected to know as friends. It also brought letters from all sorts and conditions of men in many lands who might not otherwise have addressed a Field Marshal.'
Since it was first published in 1944, the anthology has never been out of print. Enhanced by Wavell s own introduction and annotations, Other Men s Flowers has encouraged and delighted many thousands of readers over the years.
From the Author: I took ten years to write this book. And equally long to experience the dilemmas that I describe in the book. There are three types of immigrants: those who move to another land and leave their homeland behind without angst. These are the immigrants who have made peace with their new homeland. The second type never really leave home. These are the people who go abroad for work or study and then return home right away. The third type of immigrant is the one that I write about. These are immigrants who are happy in their new country but can never really leave their homeland behind. It is a tug of war between two cultures. Those are the people that my book reflects.
