The Impressionist

The Impressionist Genre: prose
Annotation:
Pran Nath Razdan, the boy who will become the Impressionist, was passed off by his Indian mother as the child of her husband, a wealthy man of a high caste. Pran lived a life of luxury just downriver from the Taj Mahal, but at fifteen, the news of Prans true parentage is revealed to his father and he is tossed out into the streeta pariah and an outcast. Thus begins an extraordinary, near mythical journey of a young man who must reinvent himself to survivenot once, but many times.

From Victorian India to Edwardian London, from an expatriate community of black Americans in Paris to a hopeless expedition to study a lost tribe of Africa, Hari Kunzrus unforgettable debut novel dazzles with its artistry and wit while it challenges with its insights into what it means to be Indian or English, black or white, and every degree that lies between.
