    Kindle Preti Taneja ç We That Are Young PDF/EPUB ↠ We That eBook å ç that book, young ebok, We That mobile, We That Are Young KindleWe That Are Young has a feel to it that's not dissimilar to Salman Rushdie's recent 2017 novel The Golden House That's praise Both novels ultimately revolve around a big figure a patriarch who is revealed to be rather less worthy of the adulation that his status and visibility might indicate Preti Taneja's Devraj Bapuji to Rushdie's Nero Golden Both books shine a spotlight on an India of the latter 20th century far removed from the deference or degradation depending on your viewpoint of the indigenous population under the British RajIndia the modern nation in Taneja's account is conveyed in its vastness diversity poverty and cruelty It's well written and utterly convincing to this reader who hasn't experienced the country at first handThe division into five sections by character and overlapping timelines works well brin
