Abstract: The poetry and short stories of Keki Daruwalla, the leading Indian English poet, have been enjoyed by at least two generations, Long fiction is his recent offering. My paper finds his latest novel Swerving to Solitude: Letters to Mama, a stylistic tour de force. The thematic part touching on a sensitive phase of Indian political history, however, fails to move the reader. The author attacks the Emergency but falters when it comes to questioning the instruments of Emergency. This is intriguing because, having been part of top administrative setup, he was aware of a lot of behind-the-scene machinations and manipulations.
