Description

‘Any of these stories could make a great film or play, they are so full of passion, tragedy,  violence compassion and religious fervor, and so vividly evoked; we hear these men and women telling their own amazing stories and are swept up by them…Only a brilliant writer like Dalrymple could bring off this astonishing and unprecedented revelation of the  humanity of people on the farthest extremes of religious ecstasy.’

WENDY DONIGER

‘I was enchanted by these poignant and magical stories. By artfully weaving together  travel, history and legend—all without guile—Dalrymple creates a compelling narrative, reminding us why India is one of the world’s greatest storytelling cultures, and why he is  one of its greatest storytellers.’

GURCHARAN DAS

‘Any travel writer so good at his job as to be brilliant, applauded, loved and needed has to  have an unusual list of qualities, and William Dalrymple has them all in aces.’

PETER LEVI

‘Dalrymple may well be the greatest travel writer of his generation.’
