From ANIMAL PEOPLE, November 2001:
Mad Dogs & An Englishwoman by Crystal Rogers
Penguin (c/o www.pengunbooksindia.com), 2000. 192 pages,
paperback. 250 rupees + postage/handling.
At least twice, at ages 17 and 89, the late Crystal Rogers
started to write her autobiography. Her second attempt incorporated
the surviving part of the first, but Rogers usually kept too busy to
write much. She died in 1996 at age 90 without having completed much
more of Mad Dogs & An Englishwoman than the first chapter; a memoir
of her brief World War II relationship with a Canadian airman named
Jim, who was killed in action; and a few vignettes of the early
years of the three humane societies that she helped to found in
India, loosely directed by seances with Jim.
