More for your book list

Zaid Hassan writes with the polite suggestion, concerning our list of recommended books (see button on the right) that “perhaps a couple of Indian/Sub-Continent authors wouldn’t go amiss?”. Mea culpa:my first list is indeed horribly occicentric. Here are Zaid’s recommendations:
– Igniting Minds” by PJ Abdul Kalam (President of India).
– The City of Djinns – William Dalrymple (non-fiction – about Delhi)
– The Idea of India – Sunil Khilnani (non-fiction)
– The Autobiography of an Unknown India – Nirad C Chaudhuri (non-fiction)
– Indian: A Mosaic – Ed Robert Silver & Barbara Epstein (collection of essays)
– Anything by R K Narayan (The English Teacher, Malgudi Days, The Financial Expert…) (Fiction)
– Last Train to Pakistan – Kushwant Singh (Fiction – about the Partition)
– Ice Candy Man – Bapsi Sidwha (Fiction – about the Partition)
