About the Book: The Elephanta Suite
Explores the shifting stories of those who come to India in search of that elusive something -and of how they react when the country and people they encounter are altogether foreign to their expectations.
Award-winning writer Paul Theroux removes the mystery and reveals the real India in his compelling novel "The Elephanta Suite". We in the West think we know India. But, as Paul Theroux reveals, we need to think again..."The Elephanta Suite" brilliantly explores the shifting stories of those who come to India in search of that elusive something -and of how they react when the country and people they encounter are altogether foreign to their expectations. Through the eyes of a middle-aged couple, a sharp-suited lawyer and a gap-year traveller, we see illusions and preconceptions unravel, and an extraordinary new India -modern, complicated, uncertain of its coming future -appears before us.
