Description
(Man Booker Prize Winner) One of the finest British novels of the last 50 years, J.G. Farrell's stunning 1973 work is the centerpiece of a trio of novels—The Troubles, The Siege of Krishnapur, and The Singapore Grip—that considered the follies of empire. "The magnificent passages of action in The Siege of Krishnapur, its gallery of characters, its unashamedly detailed and fascinating dissertations on cholera, gunnery, phrenology, the prodigal inventiveness of its no doubt also well-documented scenes should satisfy the most exacting and voracious reader," wrote John Spurling in the New Statesman. "For a novel to be witty is one thing, to tell a good story is another, to be serious is yet another, but to be all three is surely enough to make it a masterpiece." This edition, published by the New York Review of Books, includes an introduction by travel writer, novelist, and book critic Pankaj Mishna.

"Suspense and subtlety, humour and horror, the near-neighbourliness of heroism and insanity: it is rare to find such divergent elements being controlled in one hand and being raced, as it were, in one yoke. But Farrell manages just this here: his imaginative insight and technical virtuosity combine to produce a novel of quite outstanding quality."—Times (London)
