About the book: 
The Indian subcontinent has produced some of the world's greatest writers, and a body of literature unsurpassed in its sustained imagination, impassioned lyricism and sparkling tragi-comedy. Now Salman Rushdie and Elizabeth West have collected together the finest Indian writing of the last fifty years. Published to coincide with the anniversary of India's independence, it is an anthology of extraordinary range and vigour, as exciting and varied as the land that inspired it. Including works by: Mulk Raj Anand Gita Mehta Anjana Appachana Ved Mehta Vikram Chandra Rohinton Mistry Upamanyu Chatterjee R. K. Narayan Amit Chaudhuri Jawaharlal Nehru Nirad C. Chaudhuri Padma Perera Anita Desai Satyajit Ray Kiran Desai Arundhati Roy G. V. Desani Salman Rushdie Amitav Ghosh Nayantara Sahgal Githa Hariharan I.
