9780099526742: Delhi: Adventures in a Megacity

In an extraordinary portrayal of one of the world's fastest growing cities, Sam Miller sets out to discover the real Delhi. Following a spiral course through the city, he visits its less celebrated destinations; the unexpected, the ignored and the eccentric.

Through his encounters with Delhi's people - from a professor of astrophysics to a crematorium attendant, from ragpickers to members of the Police Brass Band - Miller creates a richly entertaining portrait of what this megacity means to its residents. The modern Delhi he depicts, in all its humour and humanity, is one whose future concerns us all.

Review:

"A wild, spiralling wonder of a book... the sharpest reflection of the capital since William Dalrymple's City of Djinns... Read this book and laugh, grow and gaze in gob-smacked wonder at India's whirling dreamtown" (Rory Maclean Guardian)

"The liveliest of city travelogues, a beguiling introduction to the Indian capital and an irresistible read for even the faintly curious" ( Literary Review)

"A chronicle that rivals its subject matter in energy and scope... His talent is dizzying and his narrative a rich accomplishment. I walked miles in Delhi - without moving an inch" ( The Times)

"A dizzying, droll travelogue... Miller's multitudinous city snapshots elucidate the paradoxes of gloablisation without judgement, and his tales of urban wandering form a valuable archive of a rapidly transforming city. Miller's forays into city slums are poignant, humanising evocations of Delhi's underside" (Hirsh Sawnhey Guardian)

"A thoroughly entertaining book - even down to the countless footnotes - about a fascinating city" ( Financial Times)

Book Description:

An extraordinary portrait of one of the world's largest cities and India's baffling, bustling capital.
