Amit Chaudhuri talks to Oliver Balch

Calcutta: Two Years In The City

Hay Festival 2013 , 

A personal account of two years spent in one of the least-known but greatest cities on Earth. Using the historic elections of 2011 as a fulcrum, Chaudhuri looks back to the C19th, when the city burst with a new vitality, and towards the C21st when – utterly changed – it seems to be on the verge of another turn.
