About the Author

Joseph Rudyard Kipling was born in Bombay in 1865. The grandson of a clergyman, both on his father and mother's side, he was educated in England and served his apprenticeship as a writer on the newspapers in India. No man ever tried harder to convey to his reader the sensation and very pulse of life that he himself felt than did Kipling in his early work, of which "The Phantom Rickshaw" (1888) is a well-known example.

Kipling is undoubtedly one of the greatest writers of short stories, we are still too near him to be able to clearly appreciate his great talents.

More About the Author

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was born in Bombay in December 1865. He returned to India from England shortly before his seventeenth birthday, to work as a journalist first on the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore, then on the Pioneer at Allahabad. The poems and stories he wrote over the next seven years laid the foundation of his literary reputation, and soon after his return to London in 1889 he found himself world-famous. Throughout his life his works enjoyed great acclaim and popularity, but he came to seem increasingly controversial because of his political opinions, and it has been difficult to reach literary judgements unclouded by partisan feeling.

1.0 out of 5 stars Kipling fails at slang 29 May 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is awful,written by a someone who did not truly understand either slang or accents.Kipling wrote some brilliant stories but this is not one of them.Just about unreadable,even for free avoid it like the plague.

Horribly dated, totally racist, not at all PC, patronising about the 'Working Class', terrible attempts to reproduce accents.
In spite of all this, these tales bring back the flavour and the attitudes of a time that has gone forever, and are quite funny in a sub-Wodehouse manner as well. A way of life that changed markedly in 1914, and vanished pretty much completely in 1947. When the last Indian Army brigadier who is more British than the British goes, Kipling may be all that survives.

I am sure we can learn a lesson about honesty & self sacrifice from this story. Tne world today would be a much better place when we realize money isn't the beginning & end of all we hold dear.

When you read these short stories of military life under the Raj, it's obvious that Kipling knows what he's talking about. Charming and real!
