Book Summary
Spanning a writing career of over twenty years, the acclaimed novelist Amit Chaudhuri is also one of the most gifted essayists and critics writing today, whose work has appeared in the pages of many of the most prestigious newspapers and journals in the world, including the London Review of Books, the Times Literary Supplement, Granta, the Guardian and the Dublin Review. Collected here for the first time, Telling Tales is a selection of Chaudhuris most enduring short non-fiction that showcases his sense of humour, his idiosyncratic capacity to transform the mundane, his political engagement and his mastery of words. From playing Cowboys and Indians as a child in India to an outsiders perspective on the British class system to a plane that was hijacked by Pakistani men and taken to Afghanistan at the turn of the millennium to the works of V. S. Naipaul and to the humble Indian savoury the chanachur, these essays display Chaudhuris ability to find meaning in every aspect of the physical and intellectual world and will consolidate his reputation as one of the most original and elegant writers publishing in English today.
