Event Details

In his first non-fiction book, Chaudhuri masterfully merges the genres of memoir, reportage and history as a way to describe the transformations of this ancient city and modern India. Amit guides us through not only the historical and political trajectory and turmoil of this city, but also the various streets, teashops, music stores and more. His personal narrations and stories offer an intimate, richly sensual portrait of the city.
