A BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of M.M. Kaye's epic novel of love and war.

M.M. Kaye's masterwork is a vast, rich and vibrant tapestry of love and war that spans over twenty years, moving from the foothills of the Himalayas, to the burning plains, to the besieged British Mission in Kabul.

It begins in 1857 when, following the Indian Mutiny, young English orphan Ashton is disguised by his ayah Sita as her Indian son, Ashok. As he forgets his true identity, his destiny is set...A story of divided loyalties and fierce friendship; of true love made impossible by class and race; a critique of the imperialist adventure; and an examination of the cultural and spiritual clash between East and West, 'The Far Pavilions' is a searing insight into the human heart.

Vineeta Rishi ('The Last Detective') stars as Sita and the Narrator, with Blake Ritson as Ashok/Ashton and Ayesha Dharker as Anjuli.

    " Like Melinda, I thought it should have ended 300 pages earlier than it did. I felt like his love life was the main thread in the novel and after it was resolved the book should have ended. Instead, the author chose to have his military career resolved also. I found that unnecessary, although the title finally made sense at the very very end. "

    " I fell in love with India through this wonderfully wriiten novel of the 19th century. It is a colorful story. "

    " MM Kaye novels are one of my guiltiest pleasures. I must have read and reread this novel twenty times (skipping all the parts about bloody battles). "
