Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Sri Lanka, Pakistan and India itself, William Dalrymple searches for evidence of Kali Yug, the Hindu 'age of darkness.' Venturing to places rarely visited by foreigners, he travels deep into guerilla territory with the Tamil Tigers, visits Benazir Bhutto and meets the drug lords of the North West Frontier. He unveils a regions where the strengths and problems of both modernity and tradition remain to be reconciled. The result is this engrossing, eagle-eyed and utterly enthralling collection.

Synopsis:

A collection of essays which resulted from the author's travels around India. The subjects range from the guerrilla fighters, and vegetarian terrorists that he met, to his encounters with celebrities such as Imran Khan and Benazir Bhutto, and through to the anecdotes, myths and legends that characterize the continent.

Synopsis:

Dalrymple revisits India, the subject of his second work "City Of Djinns", meets Imran Khan, Benazir Bhuto, teenage girl guerillas and vegetarian terrorists, and visits the of Lord Krishna. His fourth travel book is sure to be as equally well received as his previous three titles; "In Xanadu, City Of Djinns" and "From The Holy Mountain". "Probably the best travel writer of his generation" "Daily Mail".
