Condition: Used: Good
Comment: EXCEPTIONAL condition ex library issue hardback with a few usual library markings. Those markings are perhaps the only imperfections. The dust jacket was previously protected in mylar, and remains in very good condition with a spine sticker. The book itself presents with a couple of usual library markings (all internal). This book, otherwise, remains in closer to near new condition. This item as described will deliver in shrink wrap.

Editorial Reviews


"This is a book of startling originality, weaving stories of intimate connections with objects and harrowing histories of displacement into beautifully cadenced prose. It is a book to treasure."--Edmund de Waal, author of
The Hare With Amber Eyes

"A wonderful idea stylishly executed." -- Andrew Whitehead, former BBC India correspondent

"Aanchal Malhotra evokes one of the world's great tragedies in moving, beautiful prose, woven through everyday objects treasured as relics of a shattered age." -- Shashi Tharoor, Indian MP and author of Inglorious Empire

"Artfully weaves travel, memory and materials--all without guile--reminding us why India is one of the world's greatest storytelling cultures." -- Gurcharan Das, author of
India Unbound

"This is a truly original way to approach the history of Partition. Malhotra's writing is evocative and, through the finely observed details of everyday life, brings depth and empathy to understanding this event."--Yasmin Khan, author of The Great Partition

"A well-researched and richly readable book." -- Ramachandra Guha, author of
India After Gandhi

"[Remnants of Partition] is one of the most compelling books I have read in a long time. It is a searing account of the power of memory to shape and reshape worlds. . . . This is oral history at its best."-- Joanna Bourke,
Family and Community History Journal

"Aanchal Malhotra is a new star of Indian non-fiction."--William Dalrymple
