When Flory- a white timber merchant- befriends Indian Dr Veraswami- he defies this orthodoxy. The doctor is in danger: U Po Kyin- a corrupt magistrate- is plotting his downfall. The only thing that can save him is membership of the all-white Club- and Flory can help. Florys life is changed further by the arrival of beautiful Elizabeth Lackersteen from Paris- who offers an escape from loneliness and the lie of colonial life.George Orwells first novel- inspired by his experiences in the Indian Imperial Police in Burma- Burmese Days includes a new introduction by Emma Larkin in Penguin Modern Classics....
