20 ALLEN, Charles KIPLING, Rudyard Kipling Sahib : India and the Making of Rudyard Kipling. First Edition in dustjacket, signed by author
Little, Brown, London, 2007, ISBN:9780316726559 
ALLEN, Charles. Kipling Sahib : India and the Making of Rudyard Kipling. (London) : Little, Brown, (2007). First British Edition. Pp (8),ix-xix,(3),1-426,+ 16 pp plates. Text illustrations. Maps. Index. 8vo, brown cloth, red lettering to spine, illustrated endpapers. "This is the story of the forgotten Kipling: 'Ruddy' the troubled youth eager to be accepted by Anglo-Indian society but too arrogant for his own good. A boy terrified of heat, darkness, and disease; a teenager who suffered a series of physical and mental breakdowns and turned to opiates for relief. A young man compelled to take dangerous 'night walks' into the native city of Lahore. This is Ruddy the breaker of taboos: who visited prostitutes; who wrote about love across the racial divide and wives who committed adultery in the hill-stations; who wrote sympathetically about the drunks and vagabonds of the British underclass. But when Kipling used his pen to attack figures in the highest tiers of the establishment, he became too scandalous for British India's comfort. At twenty-three, Ruddy left India to make a name for himself in literary London." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction: 'Seek not to question.' 1. 'Mother of cities': Bombay and a beginning, 1865-7. 2. 'Youth in the eye of thesun': Bombay and expulsion from Eden, 1867-71. 3. 'A double death': Souths ea and Lahore, 1871-7. 4.
