The House of Blue Mangoes

Author(s): David Davidar


David Davidar has created an exuberant tale, set in a land of extremes. The story of India ebbs and flows with the story of the Dorai family, their fortunes inextricably linked. The early struggles for independence, the emergence of Gandhi and the Congress Party, two world wars, and finally the new India - the great events of the 20th century form the backdrop to the story of an extraordinary family. This is Davidar's first novel. It's vigorous and brilliantly coloured, teeming with vibrant characters, and dominated by the sea and mountains and tree-bound landscape of the deep south of India.
