The first book written by an Indian in English was Travels of Dean . In its early stages, IEL was influenced by the Western novel.

The first book written by an Indian in English was Travels of Dean Mahomed, a travel narrative by Sake Dean Mahomed published in England in 1793. Early Indian writers used English unadulterated by Indian words to convey an experience which was essentially Indian. Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay (1838–1894) wrote Rajmohan's Wife and published it in 1864; it is the first Indian novel written in English. Narayan's evocation of small town life and its experiences through the eyes of the endearing child protagonist Swaminathan in Swami and Friends is a good sample of his writing style.

Each text is supported with an introduction and either detailed footnotes or a glossary as appropriate. Publication coincides with the 50th anniversary of Indian independence.

Of all the great modern Indian novels, of which there has been a flood, Arundhati Roy is the one I enjoyed .

Of all the great modern Indian novels, of which there has been a flood, Arundhati Roy is the one I enjoyed most. It’s got that fabulous quality, in the literal sense. It has a craftsmanship to it, and one of the greatest endings to any novel. This is a series of translations from largely Tamil, but also Sanskrit, texts, by one of the great modern poets of India, who was the greatest translator of ancient Indian poetry into modern English. It’s equivalent to Ted Hughes doing his translations from Ovid, the same sort of thing. A great modern poet taking on ancient poetry and making modern literature.

This new Macmillan series, Modern Indian Novels in Translation, gives non-Indian readers the opportunity to see how misleading Rushdie's verdict was. Unfortunately, those readers are unlikely to take up the chance. Western receptivity to non-western literature has been confined to brief enthusiasms in narrow literary circles for Sanskrit, Persian, Chinese and Japanese classics and to short-lived interest at a wider level in one or two modern Asian writers such as Rabindranath Tagore and Yukio Mishima.
