In fact, he did both. Nowhere does he express his own ambivalence more strongly than in &&LI&&RKim&&L/I&&R, his rousing adventure novel of a young man of many allegiances. &&L/P&&R&&LP&&RKimball O''Hara grows up an orphan in the walled city of Lahore, India. Deeply devoted to an old Tibetan lama but involved in a secret mission for the British, Kim struggles to weave the strands of his life into a single pattern. Charged with action and suspense, yet profoundly spiritual, &&LI&&RKim&&L/I&&R vividly expresses the sounds and smells, colors and characters, opulence and squalor of complex, contradictory India under British rule.&&L/P&&R&&LP style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"&&R&&LSTRONG&&RJeffrey Meyers&&L/B&&R&&L/B&&R, a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature, has published forty-three books, including biographies of Ernest Hemingway, Robert Frost, D. H. Lawrence, Joseph Conrad, and George Orwell. He also wrote the introduction and notes to the Barnes & Noble Classics edition of Edith Wharton''s &&LI&&RThe House of Mirth&&L/I&&R. &&L/P&&R&&L/DIV&&R
