Inspite of that one is to gain from a thorough read. Mukherjee has written this at a time when there was no authentic secondary material available on the subject. Her critical and sensible approach (analyzing the technique rather than merely the content) is different from other Indian critics and literary chroniclers, who heap praise and hardly delve deep. The great Indian trio of Anand, Narayan and Rao are well worked upon. The book is neatly divided according to the major thematic concerns of the time and most importantly traces the growth of 'style' in Indian English fiction. No cliches and high rhetoric. Insightful and coherent.
