First edition, first impression, of the author's first book, signed by the author on the title page.

Jhabvala was born to German Jewish parents in 1927, the family fleeing to London prior to the Second World War. For twenty-four years from 1951 she lived in India, marrying an Indian architect and writing novels that reflected her "insider-outsider" status and her ambivalence toward Indian society. She also partnered with Merchant Ivory, adding twenty-three screenplays to her achievements as a novelist and short story writer, and remaining the only person to have won both the Booker and an Oscar.
