*Named a Best Travel Book of the Year by "The""Guardian" (UK)*"Sam Miller has created a book that is both a quest and a love letter, and one which is as pleasingly eccentric and anarchic as its subject." --William Dalrymple, author of "City of Djinns, " in his "Books of the Year" for the "New Statesman" (UK)"As a modern-day flaneur, Miller makes laser-sharp observations of the city's architecture and inhabitants, talking to everyone from university professors to ragpickers." --"Lonely Planet Magazine ""A walking encyclopedia on contemporary Delhi." --"India"" Today""["Delhi" is] a revelation. . . . The liveliest of city travelogues." --"Literary Review "(UK)"Miller's talent is dizzying and his narrative a rich accomplishment.

An entertaining and thoughtful book." --"Evening Standard" (UK)
