Fiction • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

Mark Tully, the former BBC bureau chief in Delhi, creates a colorful portrait of life in the state of Uttar Predesh, the "heart of India." Listeners hear stories about the problems of village life, such as having a reputation for being a barren wife, arranging a revenge killing, coping with a lazy husband, new attitudes about marriage, and religious festivals. These stories describe in personal terms a people being pushed headlong into the modern world. These are Mark Tully's own stories, and he reads them with authority and compassion. These stories help a Westerner better understand the unique atmosphere and vibrant culture of village India. D.L.G. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
