The birds of paradise by Paul Scott( Book )

53 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Scott is most famous for his much-beloved tetralogy "The Raj Quartet," an epic that chronicles the end of the British rule in India with a cast of vividly and memorably drawn characters. Inspired by Scott's own time spent in India during World War II, this powerful novel provides valuable insight into how foreign lands changed the British who worked and fought in them, hated and loved them. A coming of age tale, "The Birds of Paradise "is the story of a boy and his childhood friendship with the daughter of a British diplomat and the son of the Raja. Scott artfully brings his young narrator's voice to life with evocative language and an eye for detail, capturing the pangs of childhood and the bittersweet fog of memory with nostalgic yet immediate prose"--Provided by the publisher

The love pavilion by Paul Scott( Book )

51 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Bombay in the 1930s a young British clerk named Tom Brent is persuaded by a botanist named Saxby to stay on in India. Saxby is that rare Englishman who really understands Indian culture, but he's also elusive and deeply flawed. Years later, after Tom has become a soldier and been wounded in Burma, he is sent on a mission to Malaya to track down Saxby, now suspected of murder. The second half of the novel, set in 1945 (a time when Scott was in Malaya), is a strange brew of exotic romance, tensions between army officers, and the mystery of the jungle: its cultures, religions, and fauna. The love pavilion is where Tom meets his Eurasian lover and imagines he can escape the constraints of British colonial notions of manhood

"Joe MacKendrick, who has lived in the shadow of his father's authority and his brother Dwight's seniority, is now in Marapore - looking for the woman Dwight had loved before his death in action. There he is caught in the ferment of the new freedom which has not forgotten the bitterness of its old bondage, and as the pukka people are going "home", there are those who have no home to go to. Among them are Tom Gower, who had devoted his life to the natives who have now turned against him; and Dorothy, his wife - whom Dwight had loved, whose hatred of her husband feeds on the concealment of her chi chi (half caste) blood. A native demonstration sets fire to Gower's model village; a white man kills in fear - and is killed in return; and MacKendrick offers Dorothy the chance his brother had refused her, only to find that the old taboos of exclusion and repudiation have left her with nothing to give any man"--Provided by publisher
