    schema:reviewBody ""This is the story of the forgotten Kipling: 'Ruddy" the troubled teenager eager to be accepted by Anglo-Indian society but too cocky for his own good, with a 'caddishly dirty tongue'. The young man who, fearful of Indian India, terrified of heat, darkness and disease, suffered a series of physical and mental breakdowns and turned to opiates for relief; who began his 'night walks', which took him away from the safety of the British Station into the 'Native' city of Lahore." "This is Ruddy the breaker of taboos, who visited prostitutes and wrote about love across the racial divide and wives who committed adultery in the hill-stations, who wrote sympathetically about the British underclass in India - the British Tommies and the drunks and vagabonds. But when he used to pen to attack figures in the highest tiers of the establishment, he had become too dangerous for British India's comfort. At twenty-three, Ruddy left India to make a name for himself in literary London." "This account of the first part of Kipling's life, between 1865 and 1900, reveals the 'real' Kipling: the admirer of the underdog, who went on to rediscover the child in himself and write the Jungle Books and Kim - before fame, family tragedy and the hardening of his political prejudices undid him. Charles Allen has used his unique knowledge of the period to rediscover a strikingly modern literary figure. This book is a work of huge sympathy for both the man - while not blind to his faults - and the country that made him."--Jacket." ;
