The English-born Australian writer Elizabeth Jolley's comic Miss Peabody's Inheritance is published by Persea Books. The brilliant Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's The Nature of Passion, the story of an intergenerational clash in a prosperous Indian family, is published as A Fireside book, by Simon and Schuster.
