HarperCollins, 2004 - Indic literature - 269 pages
In This Anthology, Which Comprises Some Of Khushwant Singh'S Best Writing, You Can Look Forward To Some Talk Of Sex, A Little Of Scotch And Much Scholarship. The Collection Attempts To Mirror The Author'S Concerns And Passions-His Love Of Nature, His Anguish Over The Situation In Punjab, His Interest In Religions Of The World And His Scholarly Research On The One Into Which He Was Born, Sikhism. The Highlight Of This Book, However, Is The Expansive, Autobiographical Opening Piece Written In Khushwant'S Characteristically Candid Style And Perhaps The Most Complete Self-Portrait He Has Yet Painted.
