THE TIGER HOUSE PARTY
EMILY HAHN has a large, devoted following among readers of The New Yorker and among the many people who have read such books as China to Me, The Soong Sisters, and Kissing Cousins. She will continue to delight them—and almost certainly you—in THE TIGER HOUSE PARTY, the diverting and witty recounting of the days when she was chosen to join the elaborate party of an Indian Maharaja in the tiger country.
Having been told that the Indian royalty was threatened with extinction, Miss Hahn went to Bombay to see for herself. She soon landed in the midst of an eccentric assortment of guests, a fabulous village festival, the thrills of a tiger shoot, and the glittering ways and means of a not-yet-extinct Maharaja's house party.
Miss Hahn found her trip great fun and highly informative. So will you.
About the Author
Besides being the first woman ever to receive a degree in mining engineering from the University of Wisconsin, American-born Emily Hahn is a memoirist, biographer, and novelist who is well known also to the readers of The New Yorker.
In 1935 she went to China and stayed there for eight years, becoming a close friend of Mme. Chiang Kai-shek. The result of these years was the best-selling China to Me, The Soong Sisters, and, later, Chiang Kai-shek. The great versatility of her talent has brought about such books as Diamond, the story of the South African diamond mines, and Kissing Cousins, the memoir of her trip to the United States with her two daughters.
She lives in England except when gathering material for a book, such as on her recent trip to India for THE TIGER HOUSE PARTY.
