AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Rachel, an Australian tourist, and Salim, a Muslim Indian, are lovers having a holiday together in the south of India. In a sleeper carriage on a train, they quibble over itineraries and interrogate each other about their respective pasts.

'What is at heart is a struggle for control, based upon mutual mistrust. Salim fears that Rachel is a 'typical Western woman' with a 'lack of morals' and an ignorance of poverty. Rachel, in turn, has doubts about Salim's sincerity - is she just an "easy lay" to him or, perhaps, a ticket to a more affluent lifestyle?

'The relationship hangs by a thread as cross-cultural misunderstandings on love, money, gender and fidelity threaten to separate the pair.'
