In an Antique Land

Author: Amitav Ghosh

A rich mix of fiction, history, travel writing and anthropology, In an Antique Land is considered by some to be Amitav Ghosh’s most brilliant work. Tracing the remarkable story of Bomma, a twelfth-century Indian slave in Egypt, Ghosh makes us rethink the boundaries that divide the world and the stories we tell each other in this unique work of imagination.
