Kushanava Choudhury grew up in Calcutta and New Jersey. After graduating from Princeton University he worked as a reporter at the Statesman in Calcutta. He went on to receive a PhD in Political Theory from Yale University before returning to Calcutta to write a book about the city. The Epic City is his first book.

I loved The Epic City by Kushanava Choudhury, a beautifully written and even more beautifully observed love letter to Calcutta's greatness: to its high culture, its music and film, its festivals, its people, its cuisine, its urban rhythms and above all to its rooted Bengaliness -- William Dalrymple * 'Books of the Year', Spectator *
