 “This is much more than a travelogue; it is a chronicle of a love affair. . . . [Dalrymple’s] succinct essays and reportage burst with intimate detail and sharp perception.” —The Times (London)
 
“[Dalrymple is] the dazzling meteor of travel writing. Wide-ranging, eye-opening and deeply knowledgeable." —Independent on Sunday

“Brilliant and persuasively frightening. . . . Dalrymple is amazingly gifted.” —Mail on Sunday
 
“Witty and eagle-eyed, Dalrymple is, above everything, a fine observer and reporter." —Financial Times
 
“William Dalrymple may well be the greatest travel writer of his generation.” —The Spectator
 
“Stunning.” —The Observer (London)
 
“Brilliant reportage.” —Literary Review

I am from India and I think the author did a superb job of an outsider's depiction of India. It's dark, it's gritty, it's real. This book deserves to be in your bookshelf (after of course you have read it!!)

Dalrymple is a fine writer; here he talks about some of the problems currently facing his beloved India. It's at times frightening, but it's a very fine book, like all of his.

Stories of Pakistaan, such as these, are not to be found anywhere else, I daresay! WIsh there were some followups on some of the stories, such as the one on Ms. Bhutto!
