Paul Scott – Staying On

Paul Scott dedicated his life to capturing the essence of a people – the British in India at the end of and after the Raj.  His portrayal is honest and moving, this novel capturing the loneliness and isolation of a colonial old age.  His writing also captures the very soul of the period and brilliantly exposes British colonialism in all its forms: well-intentioned but poorly executed and brutally cruel but also a stage in the development of all nations.

Staying On by Paul Scott, Granada, £1.95, ISBN 0-586-04585-6
