Read full description of the books:



It is a bit of a trend these days for authors to take up characters from other author's fiction, and continue their story (eg: Death Comes to Pemberly by P.D. James, but based on characters created by Jane Austin, or Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, by Gregory Maguire, based on character created by L. Frank Baum). Timeri Murari did it back in 1989, with Rudyard Kipling's famous Kim. Yet as a South Asian writing with a character created by the Colonial-Era participant, Murari has repatriated Kim, bringing that colonial-hybrid directly into the reality of contemporary and perhaps perpetually hybridizing India. The Imperial Agent reads like the first of a series but no follow-ups have appeared, that I can find. The story concerns Kim's expoits as a secret agent handled by a British spy master; this in tandem with his search for a guru to help him attain his spiritual destiny. Kim, in Murari's hands, is as much an analog for India going into independence as he is a vehical for examining the political and social machinations of that tumultuous process and their impacts for the people - Britsh, Indian, and Anglo-Indian, involved. This book is adventure, history and social commentary all in one. I wish Murari had written a sequel.
