In June 1992, author Roy Moxham did a very strange thing- he wrote to a bandit in an Indian jail. Phoolan Devi was the controversial and charismatic 'Bandit Queen' hailed as a modernday Robin Hood figure in the villages surrounding Delhi. In revenge for her own gang rape, she and her followers had killed 20 high-caste Indians, for which she had been imprisoned. Struck by her story and appalled by her plight, Roy Moxham helped Phoolan Devi obtain justice, offered her encouragement when she became an MP in India on her release, and travelled with her for several years before she was finally gunned down in 2001. Based on the diaries that documented their extraordinary friendship, Moxham offers a fascinating portrait of a remarkable woman and reveals the hidden face of India.
