Description

The Room on the Roof is a timeless coming-of-age novel that will resonate with a whole new generation of readers.

Written by renowned author Ruskin Bond when he was just seventeen, it is the story of Rusty, a teenage Anglo-Indian boy who is orphaned and has to live with his English guardian in the stifling European quarter of Dehra Dun.

Unhappy with the strict ways of his guardian, Rusty runs away from home to live with his Indian friends into the dream-bright world of the bazaar, Hindu festivals and all manner of Indian life.

Rusty is enthralled, and is lost forever to the prim proprieties of the claustrophic European community.
