More Info

India, 1920: exotic, glamorous, and painfully wrenching away from England's colonial grip, only to be thrown into ethnic violence and terrorism. Isabel, a young woman in search of herself and in flight from the ravages of the Great War, is thrust headlong into a passionate and dangerous liaison with Sam, an Indian doctor and a graduate of Oxford University who insists, against all odds, on the right to be both black and British. Their devotion to each other takes them across the length and breadth of India and to the brink of disaster.
This is a powerful and erotic love affair that combines the themes of colonial exploitation, political and ethnic tensions, race and sexuality, and the many forms of partition, both secular and religious, that endanger our world. "A Black Englishman" is an epic and intimate novel about love and loyalty, revenge and faith, race and identity, and what it takes to be human.
