This is an auction for THE IMPRESSIONIST by Hari Kunzru.

[This is the book on the left in the photograph. Transmission and My Revolutions are in separate auctions.]

"Kunzru's lush, beautifully written debut novel is the story of Pran Nath Razdan, the son of Amrita, a passionate Indian woman, and an Englishman. When his relatives discover that he is not the son of Amrita's wealthy Indian husband, he is thrown out into the streets at the age of 15... Kunzru's novel is so rich that even as Pran desperately avoids examining his life, the reader will be busily pondering this wonderful, multilayered novel."
- Booklist (US)

Amazon.com review:

"Pran Nath Razdan, the boy who will become the Impressionist, was passed off by his Indian mother as the child of her husband, a wealthy man of a high caste. Pran lived a life of luxury just downriver from the Taj Mahal, but at fifteen, the news of Pran’s true parentage is revealed to his father and he is tossed out into the street—a pariah and an outcast. Thus begins an extraordinary, near mythical journey of a young man who must reinvent himself to survive—not once, but many times. From Victorian India to Edwardian London, from an expatriate community of black Americans in Paris to a hopeless expedition to study a lost tribe of Africa, Hari Kunzru’s unforgettable debut novel dazzles with its artistry and wit while it challenges with its insights into what it means to be Indian or English, black or white, and every degree that lies between."
