An extraordinary portrait of one of the world's largest cities and India's baffling, bustling capital.
Sam Miller was born in London in 1962. In the early 1990s he was BBC correspondent on Delhi. He returned to Delhi in 2002 and has lived there ever since, running media projects for the BBC World Service Trust.
"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 *
