Summary
This collection brings together seventeen of Kipling's early stories, written between 1885 and 1888 when Kipling was working as a journalist in India. Wry comedies of British officialdom alternate with glimpses into the harsh lives of the common soldiers and the Indian poor. The man who would be king is the story of two British vagabonds who set off to establish a small kingdom among primitive tribesmen in Afghanistan. Only one of the men returns, and his condition is so bad that the newspaperman-narrator barely recognizes him. From Mrs. Hauksbee's Simla drawing room to Mulvaney's cot in the barracks and to the wild hills of Kafiristan, Kipling re-creates the India he knew in stories by turns ironic and sentimental, compassionate and bitter
