'Breakfast With The Nikolides' by Rumer Godden
Futura 1983, softcover, 192 pages.
In good original condition, all pages clean.

Rumer Godden's classic novel of a family whose relationships with each other are as fragile and complicated as their relationships with India and her people. But just as the cracks and holes in the house they live in are papered over, somehow they manage to sustain the impression of respectability to the outside world. That is until the death of Emilys beloved dog forces them to confront their differences and ultimately plunges them into outright war.

"A story of childhood set in the hot and turbulent Indian plains. Louise sets out to India with her two daughters to stay with her estranged husband. They arrive at his farm in the vast and unstable plains of East Bengal and almost immediately the fragile relationships between the four family members start to break down. There are fierce tensions between Louise and her husband Charles which are echoed in the cracks and holes in the fabric of the house, and between Louise and Emily, her eldest daughter. These strains erupt into outright war after the death of Emily's beloved spaniel Don, a gift from her father, at the hands of her mother. This is an intense and passionate novel about growing up in India."
