GIFTS OF PASSAGE: An Autobiography by Santha Rama Rau

GIFTS OF PASSAGE: An Autobiography

Email this review


Autobiography, commentary and travel blend delightfully in this collection of pieces by an author whose life has had unusually wide scope and who possesses a capacity for enjoyment and comprehension of experience popular with all ages. Her stories of her native India are outstanding in that she brings a Western trained mind to an examination of the mores and emotions of her own people. Some of the pieces have appeared in magazines, but here they are intensified by anecdotal and autobiographical expansion.
