Robert Hutchison's Garden of Fools is woven around the construction of the sacred Ganga Canals under the guidance of Proby Caudey, and throws fascinating light on the social and administrative structure in India during the Raj. Though it is a fictional account of the remarkable engineering work, Hutchison has evidently undertaken detailed research into the lives of real people who lighted up the mid-19th century social scene in British India. This adds up to a gripping story elegantly written. About the Author Robert Hutchison who read at Montreal's McGill University interrupted his studies to travel and subsequently take up a career in journalism. During his long stint as a foreign correspondent for The Sunday and Daily Telegraph, London, he covered major international events, among them the Arab. Israeli war in 1967 and its aftermath, and 1969 Islamic Summit at Rabat. A series of articles in The Financial Post of Toronto on international financial Frauds and corruption won him the Notional Business Writing Award and three citations for outstanding investigative reporting in Canada in the 1970s. His long affair with the Himalayas and memories of the Raj has brought Hutchison into Fiction writing from the journalist's daily beat.
