The Raj Quartet

The new Folio edition of Paul Scott's masterpiece is already a top seller of 2009

Just published, this 4-volume set, illustrated by Finn Campbell-Notman is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest literary evocations of the end of the British Empire and has already proved hugely popular with members.

Set in the period between Gandhi's 'Quit India' campaign in 1942 and independence and partition in 1947, this sweeping epic features a fascinating cast of characters who act both as witnesses and casualties of one of the great historical events of the 20th century. Scott's narrative scope and his evocation of the Indian landscape were memorably brought to life in The Jewel in the Crown, the Granada Television adaptation of the Raj Quartet, acclaimed as one of the greatest of all dramatisations.
