Graham Greene says it is a book in ten thousand.
Swami lands in trouble when he is carried away by the more serious unrest of India in 1930. Somehow he gets himself expelled from two schools in succession, and when things have gone quite out of hand, he is forced to run away from home…
This is far more than a simple narrative of Swami's adventures - charming and entertaining as they are. By the delicate use of details, sympathetically observed, the author establishes for us the child's world as the child himself sees it.
