Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, 85, Novelist And Screenwriter For Merchant-Ivory
"For years, people who read Ruth Prawer Jhabvala's novels assumed she was born in India. ... [But she was] a German Jew displaced by war to England, who married an Indian man and settled in his country. She absorbed enough of subcontinental culture to portray it with clarity and comic sensibility in books that earned her comparisons to Jane Austen." Los Angeles Times 04/04/13
