T hose two obliterating forces in the title are what officers of the British Raj famously and self-pityingly resented. Other colonialists saw empire as a personal adventure and an arena of secret delight and shame, a personal drama obscured by the dazzling glare and discomfiting dustclouds. Heat and Dust, the movie adapted by Ruth Prawer Jhabvala from her own Booker-winning novel, directed by James Ivory and produced by Ismail Merchant, is now revived in British cinemas. After 37 years, Heat and Dust stands up as an intelligent, ambitious, substantial picture — with flaws but also intriguing aspects that were perhaps not sufficiently understood at the time. It is double-stranded. In the s, Olivia Rivers Greta Scacchi is a spirited young Englishwoman who comes out to India with her decent though stuffy husband Douglas Christopher Cazenove and encounters various grumpy, pink-faced repressed Brits wielding the colonial whip, driven mad or melancholy in the burning sun.
The book was also ranked by The Telegraph in as one of the 10 all-time greatest Asian novels. The initial stages of the novel are told in the first person, from the narrative voice of a woman who travels to India, to find out more about her step-grandmother, Olivia. She has various letters written by Olivia, and through reading these, and learning from her own experiences in India , she uncovers the truth about Olivia and her life during the British Raj in the s. Through the use of flashbacks the reader experiences the story from Olivia's point of view. We discover that Olivia, although at first glance she seems simply to be a proper Englishwoman, is actually smothered by British social restrictions, and longs for excitement.

Sucher is comprehensive in her analyses of the quests towards "the shedding of illusion" that Jhabvala paints with wit and irony.
