India, 1920: exotic, glamorous and painfully wrenching away from Britain's colonial grip, only to be thrown into religious violence and terrorism. Isabel, a young woman in search of herself and in flight from the ravages of the Great War, has married a career soldier whose brutality and cruelty sicken her. Upon arrival in India she is thrust headlong into a passionate and dangerous liaison with Sam, an Indian doctor who insists, against all the odds, on the right to be both black and British. Their devotion to each other takes them across the length and breadth of India and to the brink of disaster.

This is a powerful and erotic love affair that combines the themes of colonial exploitation, political and ethnic tensions, race and sexuality, and the many forms of partition, both secular and relgious, that endanger our world. A Black Englishman is an epic and intimate novel about love and loyalty, revenge and faith, race and identity, and what it takes to be human.
