(From the publisher):
Nine stories that reveal the oceanic distances and the unexpected intimacies between East and West. From rickshaw drivers to occultists, Christopher Columbus to Hamlet's court jester, the characters in East, West
inhabit a world in which nationality, and even identity, shift unpredictably and deliriously.
In London in the swinging sixties, an elderly Indian ayah and a Slavic porter strike up a romance based on a mutual appreciation of chess and The Flintstones. In fabulous Srinagar, a moneylender is tragically enthralled by a purloined religious relic. And in the territory between, two diplomats, who as schoolmates entertained themselves with Star Trek fantasies, go boldly into the hyperspace of international terrorism.
