    I came across this novel from 1949 by accident and I'm glad I did It's a very biting often very funny satire of Western civilization vs the primitive society of India as told through the colorful British characters inhabiting the completely fictitious Indian province of Limbo The observations of the freuently indefensible superiority of the West over the East is astonishingly relevant to what one sees in today's world I was often laughing aloud and highlighting favorite passages A pleasant surprise

    Aubrey where have you been all my life? You are witty intelligent and you write like a dream You're a cross between Aldous Huxley and PG Wodehouse what could a girl want? Loved this delightful romp where witches and tigers meet and handily overcome representatives of the British civil service and the American missionary force Such fun on to the next
