Description - The Day Of The Scorpion by Paul Scott

The second title in Paul Scott's masterpiece, The Raj Quartet The arrest by British police of ex-Chief Minister Mohammed Ali Kasim, who is known to sympathise with the Quite India movement, signifies a further deterioration in Anglo-Indian relations. For families such as the Laytons, who have lived and served in India for generations, the immediate social and political realities are both disturbing and tragic. With growing confusion and bewilderment, the British are forced to confront the violent and often brutal years that lie ahead of them. 'I can't think of anything worth knowing about the Raj in India that Scott hasn't told me- His contribution to literature is permanent' - New York Times An achievement of unusual dimensions and power' - Observer Beautifully constructed- An even richer tapestry of Indian and British character than its predecessor' - Sunday Times Author Bio- - Paul Scott was born in London in 1920. He served in the army from 1940 to 1946, mainly in India and Malaya. He is the author of thirteen distinguished novels including his famous The Raj Quartet. In 1977, Staying On won the Booker Prize. Paul Scott died in 1978.
