'The Impressionist' is a novel by the British Indian novelist and journalist of Kashmiri Pandit origin, Hari Mohan Nath Kunzru. The Impressionist is Hari Kunzru's debut novel and was shortlisted for the Whitbread Prize. It tells the remarkable story of a young boy, Pran Nath, born in India at the beginning of the twentieth century and destined by way of mixed parentage to a long and complex journey in search of his true self. Thus, Kunzru's meditations on identity, race, the British Empire, and anthropology are woven into a plot which sees Pran pushed and pulled by a mixture of fate and chance through Bombay, Oxford and Africa.
