Magnificent in scope and intensely moving, Mansion spans the long years between the fall of the Khalsa regime and the turbulence of the British Raj. Innumerable characters populate these pages: from the wily Diwan Dhanpat Rai to the idealistic Lekhraj; from innocent Rukmo to outspoken Bhagsuddhi. Men and women shape their worlds, lose their grip and footholds, and become adrift in the fierce vortices of unforeseen events. But for the Diwan's mansion itself, each event is only a passing moment in the town's colourful history.Ambitious and elegant, Mansion is a gripping tale about power: its arrogance and spectacle, and the many claimants and renouncers who desire or fear it.
