The first Indian author I ever read was the wonderful Kamala Taylor, pen name Kamala Markandaya. Nectar in a Sieve was the first, followed by Two Virgins. She died just a few years ago at age 80. Her obituary stated: "She moved to Britain in 1948 but wrote later that 'the eyes I see with are still Indian eyes.'" She wrote a number of other books and my aim is to read all of them, of course.

Ooh fascinating - I have read Nectar but didn't realise she had written any others. Loved that book. Thanks for the heads-up!
