Notes

M.M.

Kaye's masterwork is a vast, rich and vibrant tapestry of love and war that moves from the foothills of the Himalayas, to the burning plains, to the besieged British Mission in Kabul, filling them with immediacy, meticulous historical accuracy, and a rare insight into the human heart.

A story of divided loyalties and fierce friendship; of true love made impossible by class and race; a critique of the imperialist adventure; and an examination of the cultural and spiritual clash between East and West peopled by a wonderful cast of characters, The Far Pavilions is the very stuff of drama.

This is the first of twenty episodes spanning the years between the Indian Mutiny in 1857 and the Siege of the British Mission in Kabul in 1879.
