Description: "Burma has haunted my imagination since my earliest childhood. When I was growing up in India, my favorite uncle was a refugee of Rangoon. He had built a very substantial fortune in the teak trade. But in 1941 the Prince, as he was known, fled Burma, just ahead of the invading Japanese army. When I knew him, the Prince was an aging and broken exile, living in penury in Calcutta. Every time I went to visit him, Burma came alive for me, through the magic of memory. 'It was a golden land, he would say, sighing, and then the stories would begin. From my father I heard a wholly different set of Burma stories. He had served in the Allied army that expelled the Japanese from Burma in 1945.

"I always knew that I would write about Burma one day, excavating these memories and tracing my family's connections in that country. But the novel, once embarked upon, quickly metamorphosed into something else altogether: It left my own family behind and gave birth to several fictional families. The boundaries of the story expanded too, in time and place, reaching back into the nineteenth century, from western India to the northern reaches of Malaya".
