A stunning literary debut critics have likened to Richard Wright’s Native Son, The White Tiger follows a darkly comic Bangalore driver through the poverty and corruption of modern India’s caste society. “This is the authentic voice of the Third World, like you've never heard it before” (John Burdett, Bangkok 8). The white tiger of this novel is Balram Halwai, a poor Indian villager whose great ambition leads him to the zenith of Indian business culture, the world of the Bangalore entrepreneur. On the occasion of the president of China’s impending trip to Bangalore, Balram writes a letter to him describing his transformation and his experience as driver and servant to a wealthy Indian family, which he thinks exemplifies the contradictions and complications of Indian society. Recalling The Death of Vishnu and Bangkok 8 in ambition, scope, The White Tiger is narrative genius with a mischief and personality all its own. Amoral, irreverent, deeply endearing, and utterly contemporary, this novel is an international publishing sensation—and a startling, provocative debut.

It all began with a dream. A young woman saw a white tiger leap into her lap. It was both auspicious and unlucky -- her son, the fortune-teller said, would grow up with no brothers, and his father's health would be endangered by his birth. That son, however, would have a distinguished career, after going through many misfortunes and dangers. The dream was prophetic. The child was his mother's only male child and his father died of illness when the boy was only five. He grew up during the wartime and period of political turmoil in China, passing through many troubles, and he has had a very distinguished career. He is Yang Xianyi, renowned scholar, translator and interpreter of Chinese and Western literature. This delightful memoir of Yang Xianyi gives a candid and entertaining account of himself as a lighthearted and mischievous young man who immersed himself in the learning of European culture, ancient and modern, when he studied at Oxford in the 1930s. But it is also the illuminating self-portrait of a deeply patriotic intellectual living in a China under the throes of change, giving rare insight into the survival of a courageous, witty and principled individual during the harsh century of Chinese liberation.

White Tiger, Green Dragon follows the spiritual, erotic and psychic evolution of Tu Ming, a Taoist monk in Old China. Tu is apprenticed in sequence to five female adepts in the discipline known as the “dual cultivation,” a kind of tantra yoga in which sexual techniques replicate states of spiritual progress. This practice culminates in the creation of a spiritual embryo at the moment of enlightenment. The five masters who instruct Tu run the gamut of Chinese folklore characters, including the gentle pillow girl, Mei Cha, the doughty herb gatherer, Su Ba, and Lekshe Tsogyel, an acrobatic aristocrat from Tibet. Tu advances not only in his practice, but also in his understanding of life and love as he falls under the spell of five unforgettable women unequaled in religious literature. In the exciting conclusion, he experiences an epiphany that redefines what it means to attain the highest knowledge.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1915 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER IX Raga's Men Raga and his crew were coming; let them look out, or they might find more than they bargained for. There, baldly stated, is the sum total of my emotion as we two, Miss Falconer and I, stood in the dusk before her father's camp. Courage, they say, is catching; presence of mind must be so, too, because the mere company of this girl, her kind way of speaking, her confidence that a strange young man would do his best for her, steadied my five wits wonderfully. "Tell your man to go put out the cook's fire." She did so. The big Trun' Jaya seized his water-pot and ran off. A moment later, behind the huts, we saw the ruddiness of the campfire drop suddenly off the green leaves, and heard the sharp hiss of coals a-quenching. "Good," said I. "Now, what weapons have you besides your fowling piece?" "My other gun--a heavy gun." "Rifle?" I asked. "No," she replied quietly. "Shot-gun, tenbore, double. Buckshot and slug cartridges." "Much better. Will you please get it?" She vanished in the dark, but almost immediately was at my side again, holding out something toward me. "Here," she whispered. "Here it is, and the belt of shells." I couldn't help patting her on the shoulder, as if she had been the right kind of boy. No need to encourage her, though: she stood there as ready as Go. "What lights in the camp? Candles?" "No," was her answer. "Torches. Our candles gave out last week." "Get me a torch, then, please." Trun* Jaya had returned, with his wife at his heels. Miss Falconer murmured to him. Off he bounced, into a hut, out again, and handed me an object which (by the feeling, for it was too dark to see more than shapes) I made out to be one of those bamboo sliver torches, bound on a staff, like a tight little round broom....
