9780007427468: Glass Palace

Set in Burma during the British invasion of 1885, this masterly novel tells the story of Rajkumar, a poor boy lifted on the tides of political and social chaos, who goes on to create an empire in the Burmese teak forest. When soldiers force the royal family out of the Glass Palace and into exile, Rajkumar befriends Dolly, a young woman in the court of the Burmese Queen, whose love will shape his life. He cannot forget her, and years later, as a rich man, he goes in search of her. The struggles that have made Burma, India, and Malaya the places they are today are illuminated in this wonderful novel by the writer Chitra Divakaruni calls “a master storyteller.”

“I will never forget the young and old Rajkumar, Dolly, the Princesses, the forests of teak, the wealth that made families and wars. A wonderful novel. An incredible story.” ?Grace Paley

“A rich, layered epic that probes the meaning of identity and homeland?a literary territory that is as resonant now, in our globalized culture, as it was when the sun never set on the British Empire.” ?Los Angeles Times Book Review

“A novelist of dazzling ingenuity.” ?San Francisco Chronicle
