The Siege Of Krishnapur

by J.G. Farrell

The Siege Of Krishnapur Synopsis

India, 1857 - the year of the Great Mutiny, when Muslim soldiers turned in bloody rebellion on their British overlords. This time of convulsion is the subject of The Siege of Krishnapur, widely considered to the one of the finest British novels of the last fifty years. A witty and individual take on the many traditions and follies of Empire, it is also a gripping account of survival under siege, illuminating how extreme conditions can influence and affect people's behaviour and the human spirit. Reader Tim Pigott-Smith is a renowned British film and television actor.
