Read full description of the books:
Il romanzo dipinge un grande affresco che attraversa tutto il Novecento seguendo i percorsi intrecciati di tre famiglie tra Birmania, India e Malesia. La storia è scandita dal succedersi di amori, matrimoni, nascite e separazioni, cui fanno da sfondo le violenze della Storia, dall'ingresso dell'esercito inglese a Mandalay nel 1885, con la caduta del regno di Birmania, alla Seconda guerra mondiale, la lotta dell'India per l'indipendenza e la fine dell'impero coloniale britannico. Dietro lo scorrere impetuoso della saga storica, sono evidenti gli enormi cambiamenti provocati dall'impero nella cultura materiale dei paesi conquistati.
