Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Available for the first time in paperback, Steve Coll's trek across a socially and politically damaged South Asia

Bestselling author Steve Coll is one of the preeminent journalists of the twenty-first century. His last two books, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Ghost Wars and New York Times bestseller The Bin Ladens, have been praised for their creative insight and complex yet compelling narratives-and have put him on par with journalists such as the legendary Bob Woodward. Now, for the first time ever, the paperback edition of On the Grand Trunk Road is finally available, revised and updated with new material. Focusing on Coll's journeys in conflict-ridden India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Afghanistan as a bureau chief for The Washington Post, On the Grand Trunk Road reveals a little-seen area of the world where violence, corruption, and greed have had devastating effects on South Asians from all walks of life.

Synopsis:

From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Ghost Wars" and the "New York Times" bestseller "The Bin Ladens" comes this account of a journalist's travels through conflict-ridden India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Afghanistan.
