An Indian Attachment

Sarah Lloyd

13.99

An Indian Attachment tells the story of a love affair between Sarah, a young British woman of adventurous spirit, and Jungli, an impoverished, opium-addicted Sikh temple servant. But this is not just a cross-cultural love story. With totally convincing authority, it immerses the reader in the realities of rural India like no other book, made vivid by a meticulous examination of landscape and a description of the realities of desperate poverty, first in a remote Punjabi village in 1979 and afterwards in a flyblown, snake-infested, ramshackle community which grew up around an authoritarian holy man.

‘A remarkable achievement: beautifully written, sympathetic without being starry-eyed ... lots of real wisdom and sensitivity and delicious quiet humour.’ - Times Literary Supplement
‘... a traveller’s tale, a love story, and, above all, a brilliant exposé of village India.’ - Sunday Telegraph
