The Fire Worshippers - Perin Bharucha

Strand Book Club, 1968, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Good+ - in Good DJ. Edges of DJ somewhat ruffled, nicked and chipped at the head of the spine and the top corners of both panels. Gently bruised at head & tail of spine and corners, faded at the same. Previous owners inscription to ffep. Pages very gently age-tanned.

From the cover: “The three strands of the story run parallel to each other but often cross and re-cross to make a skilfully woven fabric. Adi, who dreams of speed and motorcycles; Nari, idealistic, endeavouring to shake off the confining bonds of community and religion, wanting to marry ‘outside’; Rhoda, whose first experience of high society leaves her dissatisfied with her middle-class surroundings. Their hopes and fears and loves make up The Fire Worshippers. Perin Bharucha displays an amazingly deft and sure touch in this first novel and sustains the pace and interest till the end.”

Size: 9" x 5¾". Red boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 216 pages.
