Plain Tales from the Hills by Rudyard Kipling

Book Description

Set and published during the time the British Raj, a time of subalterns and tea planters, tiffin and bands playing 'The Roast Beef of England', the forty stories in "Plain Tales From The Hills" are played out under an unforgiving sun, revealing the deceit, faithlessness, shallowness, despair, mistrust, hate and petty jealousies rife amongst the British inhabitants of India. Fascinating, funny, tragic, immensely readable and witty, these stories provide an invaluable insight into life in India during the British Raj, introducing us to the work of one of the most beloved writers of the twentieth century.

Author Biography - Rudyard Kipling

Rudyard Joseph Kipling was born in Bombay in 1865. In 1982 he started work as a journalist in India, and while there produced a body of work, stories, sketches and poems - notably Plain Tales from the Hills (1888) - which made him an instant literary celebrity when he returned to England the following year. In 1901 Kim appeared and was followed in 1902 by the Just So Stories. Tales of every kind - including historical and science fiction - continued to flow from his pen, but Kim is generally thought to be his greatest long work, putting him high among the chroniclers of British expansion.He was the first English writer to be awarded the Nobel Prize, in 1907. He died in 1936 and his autobiographical Something of Myself was published the following year.
