A society woman decides to 'educate' a man and is met with impropriety, a small group of European settlers find themselves socially compromised by each other's infidelity, and a 'second-rate woman' proves herself worthy in the eyes of the women of Shimla. Light-hearted and witty, Under the Deodars features 'The Education of Otis Yeere', 'A Wayside Comedy' and 'A Second-Rate Woman'. These stories chronicle the lives of the British people who settled in the hills of India at the turn of the twentieth century, and the ways in which they adapted to the demands of Empire. About the Author Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was born in Bombay, and completed his studies abroad before returning to India, where he wrote his celebrated work Plain Tales from the Hills. A novelist, poet and short-story writer, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907, becoming the youngest person to have ever received this award. He also received the Gold Medal of the Royal Society of Literature in 1926. Among Kipling's several acclaimed books are the iconic The Jungle Book and Kim.
