Today’s Free Kindle eBook: The Roar of the Tiger
‘An English farce in classical garb … perches atop such classics as A Passage to India and The Jewel in the Crown like the mustache that Magritte painted on the Mona Lisa.’ – The LA Times Book Review Northern India, 1930In the fictional English township of Jamalpur is a railway station on the East Indian Railway Loopline. It is the workshop for maintaining the rolling stock of the entire East Indian Railway company. Covering a good fifty square miles of flat land in the middle of a purple plain, it grows each year, sprawling aimlessly across the landscape.A marble statue of Queen Victoria stands in the town square; and in the hills above, there is a strange black boulder that remarkably resembles the Empress of All India.It is the training ground for Railway personnel, both official lower class, and the worker, graded according to sports ability, colour, caste, and education, in that order. The real quality bosses were the covenanted, straight out from Blighty wallahs; worshipped, feared, and greatly envied. Every mother with daughters prays nightly for single men to arrive.Everyone in town is either sex-mad or plain loony. At church services, Sgt. O’Leary leaves his place beside his mistress, Mrs. Ray, to fondle the beautiful organist, Jane, in mid-hymn, despite her cries of outrage. The town’s richest man, Mr. Edwards, comes home to find his daughter standing on one leg and tweeting under the impression that she is a bird. New oddities arrive, seemingly, on each train. An unhinged clergyman, the Rev. Morgan, comes to take the place of the clergyman who tipples and a blonde adventuress hits town with claims upon the manager of the local club, where the annual ball of the Railroad Apprentices is to take place. The weather grows ominous. Menacing growls are heard from up in the hills. And not long afterwards, a blonde head and a dismembered body is fished in neatly tied parcels out of the Maidan Lake… The Roar of the Tiger is a sparkling comic novel that highlights the conflicts, rivalries, and erotic complications that disturb the orderly surface of Jamalpur, with devastating results… The Roar of the Tiger was originally published as After the Ball Was Over. Praise for The Roar of the Tiger“A fine comic novel…One hears in Kingsland bits of Dickens, Waugh, and the British playwright Peter Barnes…Within this short novel is a comic distillation of the British adventure in India.” — The Cleveland Plain Dealer“A wicked little comic novel set in Jamalpur, India…a delightfully silly cooler to bring down some of the recent Raj fever” — Kirkus Reviews “[The Roar of the Tiger] perches atop such classics as A Passage to India and The Jewel in the Crown like the mustache that Magritte painted on the Mona Lisa.” — Los Angeles Times Annie Ayre was born and educated in India. She has worked in London as a journalist and screenwriter, lived in Tuscany for three years, before moving to Fairview, Tennessee. Other novels include A Saint among Savages,and, for children, Treasure Islands. She wrote under the pen name Rosemary Kingsland.
