In Pursuit of Amitav Ghosh
This book is a voluminous compendium of different essays covering Ghosh’s writing, both his fiction and his non-fiction. The editors of this volume take a re-look at the rich literary wealth of Ghosh, and try to draw out their separate takes on the contributions of Ghosh. All of them try to place a ‘new’ and valid critical frame around the notion of civilizational crisis that often haunts Amitav Ghosh’s search for ethical meaning. The book also includes a candid and revealing authorial interview, and is intended to be a comprehensive reference for students, teachers, scholars and book-lovers alike. The collection is the first of its kind in the area of Ghosh studies.
