City-Improbable-Writings-on-Delhi

City Improbable Writings on Delhi 'A prolific anthology that wears a veil of complete experience. The subject being incomparable and the interpretations so diverse, City improbable becomes a holistic and interesting examination ... The city unfolds as a grandeur of history, with all the pomp and pretension of huge, ornate durbar, whose resplendence is marred only by the sorry state of the marginalized, at all times ... The anthology is a connoisseur's delight' -Hindustan Times '[City Improbable] is like one of those classic Delhi parties: here you'll meet the amateur historian, the architecture expert, the gossip, the social arbiter, the politician, even the evangelist ... gives you the grand tour in one place' -Business Standard '[A] highly readable anthology ... The extracts and essays illustrate how the life of Delhi's citizens has lurched from calamity to calamity at the whims of rulers and invaders' -India Today 'Part historic, part biographical, [City Improbable] is an informed collective of writers, each with his or her special perspective on the city ... The book recognizes that the city's life and pulse lies outside drawing room and on its streets ... The hijras, Gymkhana Club members, pissers, maidservants, rich business types, rag pickers, eye teasers, MPs and defecators ... are deftly constructed and deconstructed' -tehelka.com literary review 'This book runs through the gamut of multifariousness represented in [Delhi's demography ... with all the sometimes tangy, sometimes bittersweet vignettes that define this city' -Indian Express 'Anyone who has ever had anything to do with Delhi, or is interested in the history of cities, should take a look at this collection' --Telegraph
