Some fiction suggestions to prepare for our Pakistan discussion

1. Krushwant Singh, A Train to Pakistan, A Novel.

I have not read this, but it sounds hopeful.

2. Paul Scott, The Raj Quartet.

3. Salman Rushdie, Midnight's Children.

4. Salman Rushdie, Shame.

I have read 2, 3 and 4.

The Raj Quartet was made into an excellent Masterpiece Theatre series in early 1980s.
