ABOUT THIS BOOK

Straightforward, sometimes philosophical, In Black and White features tales such as
‘At Twenty-two’, in which an old and blind miner must find his way out of a flooded
pit; ‘The Judgement of Dungara’, in which a missionary battles against the malice
of the High Priest; and ‘The Sending of Dana Da’, in which an Englishman meets a
quirky ‘independent experimenter’.
Snapshots of social and political life in the British Raj, this collection throws into
sharp relief the uneven relationships that developed between the ruler and the
ruled.

from the Hills. A novelist, poet and short-story writer, he won the Nobel Prize for
Literature in 1907, becoming the youngest person to have ever received this award.
