Amitav Ghosh talks to Claire Armitstead

Fictions: Gun Island

Hay Festival 2019 , 

We are delighted to launch the new novel by one of the world’s great storytellers, the author of the Ibis trilogy. A dealer of rare books, Deen is used to a quiet life spent indoors but, as his once-solid beliefs begin to shift, he is forced to set out on an extraordinary journey; one that takes him from India to Los Angeles and Venice via a tangled route through the memories and experiences of those he meets along the way.
