Reading List


Hall, Tarquin. The Case of the Man Who Died Laughing. Toronto: McClelland and Stewart, 2010.

This who-dunnit provides an entertaining glimpse of life in contemporary Delhi.

Kipling, Rudyard. Kim.

Although it reflects many of the racist stereotypes and imperialistic ideas of its time, Kipling's adventure novel often provides an affectionate depiction of India's multicultural mosaic and traditional wisdom.

D'Oyly, Sir Charles. Tom Raw, the Griffin

This burlesque poem in twelve cantos is illustrated with twenty-five engravings portraying the adventures of a cadet in the East India company's service, from his departure from England until he obtains a staff position in India.

Parks, Francis. Wanderings of a Pilgrim in Search of the Picturesque.

In her twenty-four years in India, as the wife of a British official, Fanny Parks travelled far and wide and befriended many important people including the Queen of Gwalior, Baiza Bai.

Sherwood, Mary Martha. The History of Little Henry and His Bearer

This is a relic of the missionary influence which became increasingly evident in India in the nineteenth century.
