The Imam and the Indian is an extensive compilation of Amitav Ghosh’s non-fiction writings. Sporadically published between his novels, in magazines, journals, academic books and periodicals, these essays and articles trace the evolution of the ideas that shape his fiction.

He explores the connections between past and present, events and memories, people, cultures and countries that have a shared history. Ghosh combines his historical and anthropological bent of mind with his skills of a novelist, to present a collection like no other.


‘Among writers on my must-read list, the name of Amitav Ghosh comes on top . . . These prose pieces are a sheer delight . . . riveting.’
--- Khushwant Singh

‘This is a book that needs to be read from cover to cover.’
