Brandon has a nice piece on Rudyard Kipling’s Kim, which he read recently. For those who don’t know, Kim concerns the coming-of-age of an English orphan, raised in the slums of Lahore, in the Punjab, and his induction into the Great Game of espionage between Britain and Russia over the future of India. It’s a time and place that Kipling knew full well, it’s fascinating, and I need to re-read it Real Soon Now.
