    An Entertainment.

    'Hussein' was Patrick O'Brian's second novel. Published when he was only in his early twenties, this marvellously readable Indian adventure was much admired. It tells the story of a young mahout - or elephant handler - his childhood and life in India and his relationship and adventures with elephants.

    As a boy, Hussein falls in love with a beautiful elusive girl Sashiya, and arranges for another of her suitors to be murdered with a fakir's curse. The dead man's relative vow vengeance. Hussein escapes and his exploits, which include snake charming, sword fighting and cross-border spying, begin . . .
