At the End of the Century

ebook
A New York Times Book Review Editors' Choice
"To read Ruth Prawer Jhabvala is to regard the human heart through a magnifying glass." —Claire Luchette, O, The Oprah Magazine
In this selection of stories, chosen by Jhabvala's surviving family, her ability to tenderly and humorously view the situations faced by three (sometimes interacting) cultures—European, post-Independence Indian, and American—is never more acute. With an introduction by her friend, the writer Anita Desai, At the End of the Century celebrates a writer's astonishing lifetime gift for language, and leaves us with no doubt of Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's unique place in modern literature.
