Raja Rao is one of the greatest Indian writers in English and a major figure in twentieth century literature. An iconoclast, he has used language, form and content in innovative ways over the past sixty years, producing an enduring body of texts.
Raja Rao has brought to Indian fiction ... an epic breadth of vision, a metaphysical rigor and depth of thought, a symbolic richness, a lyrical fervor and an essential Indianness' of style.
Raja Rao is perhaps the most brilliant and certainly the most interesting writer of modern India. --- New York Times Book Review
