Instead of returning "home" when he retired, Tusker, once a Colonel in the British Army, and his wife Lily chose to remain in the small hill town of Pangkot with its eccentric inhabitants and archaic rituals left over from the days of the Empire.

"Staying On covers only a few months but it carries the emotional impact of a lifetime, even a civilisation" * Philip Larkin * "Certainly his funniest and, I think, his best. it is a first-class book and deserves to be remembered for a long time" * Evening Standard * "One of the most cherished books of the last quarter-century. It is good to re-read it for its humour and pathos as well as its wonderful description of the legacy of the Raj" * Sunday Telegraph *
