This is not only the story of one person. It is the story of the relationships of J. Krishnamurti and the people closely involved with him, especially Rosalind Williams Rajagopal and D. Rajagopal, my mother and father, and the consequences of this involvement on their lives. Recently there have been biographies and a biographical film on Krishnamurti that have left areas, and a large span of years, in mysterious darkness. It is not in the interest of historical integrity, especially where such a personality is concerned, that there be these areas of obscurity.
"Sloss's achievement in Lives in the Shadow with J. Krishnamurti is to have made him interesting without embalming him in flattery.She brings us insights and information that help flesh out someone who has been projected as a spiritual skeleton by too many biographies.Without ever losing sight of her huge affection for her subject, Sloss is able to look beyond the truth."
