Umrao Jan Ada tells the story of a Lucknawi courtesan, a woman of great charm and a reputation as a poet and singer. The book re-creates the ambience of old Lucknow and takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the palaces of wealthy nawabs and the hideouts of colorful vagabonds to the luxurious abodes of the city's courtesans. It captures the culture and the decadence of a way of life that has vanished forever.
