"Though he grew up in Bombay and lives in England, award-winning author Amit Chaudhuri was born in Calcutta, a place to which he continues to feel connected. In this literary portrait of the British colonial capital of India, he evocatively depicts Calcutta's changing culture, diverse social classes (he spends time with everyone from the homeless to the bourgeois), and evolving politics (including the historic 2011 election) while also exploring the idea that "home and elsewhere" are "enmeshed intimately." Combining reportage with memoir and history, this eye-opening look at one of India's biggest cities might interest readers of Katherine Boo's Behind the Beautiful Forevers.".
