Where Rivers Meet: Memories of Madras 1948-1972 - Signed

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Sally Solomon's Where Rivers Meet is a delightful memoir of her life in Madras from 1948 to 1972. After moving from Calcutta, Sally and her husband Gerry spent the next two decades building a family and several homes in this city. Her writing takes you back to a more genteel age - where responsibilities between husband and wife were clearly demarcated, where households were staffed with a retinue of butlers and cooks, ayahs and gardeners as par for the course, and where children roamed and played freely with a simplicity that is sorely missed. Her reminiscences about club life, music mornings, Sabbath meals, hill holidays and the races makes the reader nostalgic for a life less ordinary.

Internally clean and bright. Minor stain on the underside of back cover. Slight wear to cover. Signed by author Sally Solomon.
