English August

(1988)
An Indian Story
A novel by

 
Agastya Sen is a young Indian civil servant whose imagination is dominated by women, literature and soft drugs. As the novel opens he has been posted to the small provincial town of Madna. This novel is a funny, wryly observed account of Agastya Sen's year in the sticks. Beautifully written, this is a marvelously intelligent and entertaining novel, and especially fascinating for anyone curious about modern India.
