Set in a village in southern India shortly after India gained independence, Nectar in a Sieve portrays, through the lives of its characters—Rukmani, Nathan and their children—the hopes and aspirations of a young nation recently embarked on the path of development, surmounting many obstacles along the way. Few novels ever published have celebrated the human spirit, its sheer resilience, with greater success. Originally published in 1954 to instant acclaim, Nectar in a Sieve became an international best-seller and was translated into seventeen languages. This special collector’s edition introduces a whole new generation to this classic of modern literature. Printed pages: 200.
